Just bought this sound card, installed drivers, detected just fine.

Only problem is no sound comes out at all. If i play a sound while the volume control is up (Windows 7) I can see the levels change, but there's just no sound at all.

I tried turning the Digital Output Only off, but that didn't help either. Is the card busted?

Did you install the drivers using the CD that came with the hardware, or did you download the latest drivers off the net?

Also, what is the specific make and model of the sound card and the make and model of your PC?

HERE is where you can download the audio driver for the Creative Sound Blaster Audigy SE 7.1.

I know you said that have already downloaded the driver, but just making sure you selected the right one.

------------------------------------------------------

Click Start

In the search bar type devmgmt.msc and hit Enter

Click the + next to the pane Sound, Video and Game Controllers so it expands, showing all installed hardware.

Take a screenshot of this window and attach the file in your next post.

To post a screen shot of the active window, hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key. Open the Windows PAINT application and Paste the screen shot. You can then use PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file. To upload it to the forum, open the full reply window and use the Manage Attachments button to upload it here.

According to that screenshot, everything seems to be in working order.

-----------------------------------------------------

Go to Control Panel

Select Sound

Click the Playback tab (if not selected by default)

Play something like a Youtube video and see if the bar to the right fills with green boxes.

Also, make sure your computer's speakers are selected as default and that Windows' volume control is set at 100.

-----------------------------------------------------

You can also try connecting headphones to the appropriate port or a different set of speakers.

Yeah levels are detected just fine, but there's no sound coming out of my speakers or my headphones (when I plug them in).

The speakers and headset worked on the onboard audio, so it's not those

The last suggestion I have would be to make sure the card is as snug as possible in the PCI slot.

Other than that, I believe I'm all out of ideas. :(

I hope someone else stops by with some insight.
