Alexander,

ASUS motherboard generally comes with integrated Realtek sound system.
Did you ever try the soundcard detection on FC-3 and play sounds?  My
ASUS has a VIA chipset an Realtek sound card. I first started with a
FC-2 install. It detected the sound card and played sounds. I later
upgraded to FC-3 and now the system detects the sound card but does
not play the test.
