Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook
Today when I tried to record music via my mic/line-in jack (which I've done many times before and never had any issues with) there was some short buzz and after less than a minute the laptop started to buzz without a stop. I tried rebooting and just in a few seconds the buzzing started once again. I did a great amount of troubleshooting, checked all the devices, drivers, updates, etc. Nothing worked. Then I came to realise that no matter how I set the volume I can't get any sounds from the external/built-in speakers nor from the earphones...Now, everything else seems to be working fine, except for the fact that the buzzing is still here and that I have no other sound whatsoever... I'm really confused and desperate.
Sounds like you tried everything possible. Based on what you have stated that you tried already I would agree with your diagnosis of a bad sound card.
If this was my Laptop I would be looking for a nice set of USB speakers and Microphone or a headset.
You can either keep the speakers turned down or you may be able to disable the onboard sound through a BIOS setting.
Or even better. Here is a USB sound card with speaker and microphone jacks. Pretty Cheap too.
