Hey I'veexpereienced the same with this onboard sound card . I did the hardware test and suddently I had sound. But not for long Next time I switched on my computer there was no sound again.

When I try to play .ogg files in VLC I get:
[00000330] pulse audio output error: Failed to connect to server: Invalid argument
[00000330] pulse audio output error: Pulse initialization failed

can anyone help?
