I have the m17xr4 and had a whole slew of issues with my audio card. It would show that it was connected them sometimes it wouldn't. Turns out after opening it up my sound card was loose it wasn't driver related at all. So you may want to open it and see that everything is seated properly.

well I've already had it opened, the gpu is soldered to the board and can't be removed, I even tried heating it to attempt a reflow but that did nothing either

thanks for the suggestion though
