I recently replaced a soundblaster 16bit card in my computer with a Soundblaster Live! 24bit card. I uninstalled the old drivers and installed the ones that came with the 24bit card, but it doesn't work! My computer detects it under the device manager, but I get no sound. None.

I am doughtful that it is the speakers, and the speaker output cable is pugged into the correct slot on the cound card. So yeah, I have no idea what it is.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated :)

Thank you,

Celor.

Try putting it into a different PCI slot.

Have you gone through all the settings to make sure nothing was disabled?

Have you got it setup to use the correct speaker type e.g. 5.1, 2.1 or headphones.

I had the exact same problem with the exact same sound card. It turns out that my motherboard was bad. not the sound card at all. I sent my mobo back and got a full refund. My current configuration uses the same card i couldn't get sound from. and it works perfect. But I suggest trying different pci slots. this didn't work for me. but maybe you'll have such luck.

My recomendation is to uninstall the card and any software and drivers that came with the card. Restart your computer, Then run a registry cleaner (RegScrubXP - It's freeware). Then try re-installing your sound card and drivers.

Just my opinion........
Good Luck

I agree with sandman. Also, make sure your speakers are plugged in to the output jack. I've made that mistake many times. ;)
