So I hit the pc to play some games tonight and first noticed that I couldn't switch to my headphones through the audio manager. Re seated the card and tried reinstalling the driver. No go it is an Asus xonar dg. Reset bios to optimized defaults because on reboot it prompted me to with a boot error and tried again to no avail. It just wouldn't recognize the card being there. I figured I would wait until tomorrow and just play on my onboard via audio, loaded the game( Grid autosport) and my save file is corrupted and it started in windowed mode. Now, I am all for it being a bad pci slot on my mobo(it is my second mobo after a bad pcie slot) or a fried sound card but the bios prompt and corrupt save has me baffled. Any ideas on what may have happened? I am baffled.
