    I downloaded all the drivers for my Soundblaster X-Fi sound card and I have moved my sound card to a different PCI slot a few times but still I have no sound. What else can I try to make this work. (The volume on the PC is fine, nothing is muted on any audio settings on this computer.)

    My mobo audio driver has been installed, I tried it using the mobo audio outlet and the soundcard outlet both give no sound... Is there anything I should check on the speakers, got two small computer speakers and a subwoofer.

    I was told in some instructions to put that plug into a device that was in my drive bay but I took it out and then put it into the motherboard but still I am getting no sound, I disabled any onboard audio I had so it wouldnt mess with my sound card. what am I doing wrong....

    by device in your drive bay would that mean your cd-rom drive? you havent needed those audio wires for quite some time, win2000 and XP dont use it for audio playback, if you have your ob sound diabled in bios, have rebooted and loaded drivers and it still doesnt work i would think the card is bad. does your ob sound work at all?

    Asus P5WD2-E premium mobo, disabled the sound card and enabled the onboard sound and still no sound.

    I went into the audio manager and when I plug in the speakers it does detect them, it gives me options to adjust them but I'm hearing nothing...

    you could reset bios defaults and change anything back dealing with your video and what-not
    but leave your sound settings be. save changes and reinstall you drivers that came with the comp (mobo drivers)
