    Sound Card: Sound Blaster Audigy

    I was playing a game on ventrilo and got up from my seat and tripped over my headset cord.
    I have a Sennheiser PC350. I didn't pull it out of the ports. So I checked and I could still hear out of everything.
    But nobody could hear me. So I unplugged my headset and tried again. Microphone wasn't working.
    So I tried a different headset. Brand new gaming headset out of the package. Sound worked. Microphone didn't.

    Is it possible I broke my soundcard? I cant see how.
    Is there anything else I can check?

    Assuming you are connected directly to the sound card, yes, it could be damaged.

    Enable the onboard audio chipset and test using front or rear panel ports. That will at least determine if you have a faulty sound card or headset.
