    Fuck Asus. Fuck them. I'm fucking tired of this fucking motherboard and I'll never buy anything Asus makes again. Fucking piece of garbage.

    The on-board sound was working fine yesterday, but now it's completely dead. Won't play a goddamn thing. Speakers work fine with my MP3 player, but I can't get any sound out of my computer. Fucking shit.

    A7N8X-X BTW, if you want an absolute hunk of fucking garbage, buy one.

    I never really trusted on-board io.

    My A7N8X-E, my friends A7N8X-E, and my sisters A7N8X-X all use onboard sound, and never had a problem. So maybe its the user... :hsugh:

    I haven't done anything strange with it, things on it just stop working now and then. I've randomly had the temp sensors stop working, PCI slots stop working, IDE stop working, now the sound... It's just ongoing. Yet when I take my board to the dealer, they run all their tests on it and find nothing. Between the flakey board and the awful tech support, Asus has made a very bad impression on me :dunno:

    I highly doubt it, since the sound has always worked before, and generally things that don't work in Windows work great in Linux, not vice versa.

    wow dude...if they check it and it works jsut fine, then it's not the mobo. most likely it's another faulty piece of hardware in your computer.

    i would bet PSU, if certain things break, then magically work, then next re-boot shut off again. or possibly u need a simple reformat.

    had this same problem b4, broekn mobo i thought. tested in another computer and it worked fine. tiurned out to be PSU.

    When I took it in to be tested they tested pretty well everything in the computer (the wireless card is the only thing that's new since then), and it was all fine. My hard drives are both relatively new. My PSU is just fine. I installed a new version of Linux a few weeks ago, so it's pretty much a fresh format. Considering that the sensors have been the flakiest thing and they are integrated parts of the motherboard, I'm guessing the mobo is at fault.

    so you are saying that when you got it looked at by someone else, they got it to work just fine right? but when you take it home it doesn't work at all? that usually means there is some form of non-compatibility on your part.

    you can't blame someone else for getting it to work just fine, but it doesn't work at all for you. by this definition...it looks ALOT like a user error, and not a hardware error. (at least not the mobo, OTHER hardware could be at fault)

    what PSU do you have? are it's rails right on? how many amps per rail does it have? and do you have any excessive amount of other hardware like 20 fans or 4 cd-drives, etc?

    doubt its a faulty HDD, you would be getting BSOD's and really blatant errors.

    What I mean is, they didn't find anything technically wrong with the board when they ran their hardware tests. That doesn't mean it worked fine for them. It has mysteriously started working again now - like I said, it's flakey. The sensors are even flakier, they randomly start and stop every few minutes.

    I've never had a BSOD, seeing as I've never used Windows.

    To make things worse, what's even worse than the mobo itself is Asus's tech support. They don't have a number to call, and when they reply to your email it's a stock email based on the subject of your email, and looks like they haven't read it at all. I realize that tech support is generally shitty, but theirs is even worse than most.

    Nope. Never have, definitely not trying it with the stock cooling.

    maybe your drivers that you have for linux arnt right? doesnt make sense for it to half work and half not though. what distro are you running? i would just throw in knoppix and see if it works, then you will know if its hardware or not. and maybe update the firmware? i dunno. but it all seems silly to me.

    tech support shold be personal and helpful, not an automated e-mail. that's definetly terrible. i've always had great support from Abit and OCZ, never purchased Asus.

    Nodoby has ported the BSOD to linux? I am dissapointed in the OSS community.

    The drivers are fine, they've always worked perfectly before. I've honestly had way more driver problems on Windows than on Linux. I'm running Ubuntu, which auto-detected everything much the way Knoppix does.

    They have, but for us it's a fun screensaver, not a pain-inducing crash.
