I am having trouble with the onboard sound on my Asus G60VX laptop.  It just went out one day and regardless of what I do, I can't seem to get it back.  I have uninstalled the driver and rebooted the machine twice.  Each time, Windows 7 recognizes the missing driver and installs it automatically.  This did not fix the issue, so I went out to Asus' site and found two different drivers for the G60VX model.  I tried each one of them separately, to no avail.  The headphone jack works just fine, and what is strange is that when the machine boots (right after POST) there is a graphic that shows up pertaining to the Republic of Gamers line of laptops from Asus.  There is a sound that plays with this graphic, which is somehow not affected by the audio problem.  So it seems the issue must be confined to Windows itself.  Can anyone provide some insight into this?  What should I try next?  Thanks in advance for any help!!
