In all cases I know of, it's necessary to flip a setting in the BIOS
to allow the onboard sound to be overridden with an card external to
the MB. As to how this setting could be changed inadvertently -
cosmic rays, static electricity, Windows obstinacy, waving of chicken
feet -- I haven't a clue.
If you fill your heart with regrets of yesterday and the worries
of tomorrow, you have no today to be thankful for.
