The other day I was sitting at the PC with a few virtual terminals open with a baby on my lap and she pounded the keyboard, a bunch of stuff popped up then disappeared, then my sound just stopped. After rebooting, still no sound in any application. As far as I can tell it should still work fine: The speakers work with other inputs just fine. Code: cat /dev/sndstat FreeBSD Audio Driver (newpcm: 32bit 2009061500/i386) Installed devices: pcm0: <HDA Realtek ALC260 PCM #0 Analog> (play/rec) default Code: kldload snd_hda kldload: can't load snd_hda: File exists I'm guessing all the right drivers are still loaded. Short of booting with a different system, what can I try to make sure my sound card didn't just fail and find the cause of the problem?
