I am using a PC with Intel DG31PR motherboard in onboard Realtek audio.
I was not using the PC for around 5 years.
Yesterday I switched on the PC after cleaning the dust and everything.
All components work except the audio.
I have front panel audio and a back panel audio. Both are not working.
I am sure that my speakers are working.
I tried with Windows and Linux Operating systems. As far as OS is concerned, I can see the sound is playing by looking at various levels. But no sound is coming out.
Can anybody tell me whether it is a hardware problem, and if yes how can I resolve it?
PS: I cleaned the audio jacks and the audio chips.
