    Okay I have a Audigy sound blaster and an onboard sound for my PC. I've installed and reinstalled my Audigy sound card, no sound emitting from the card. I switch to onboard sound and I try a "test hardware" on the sound features. It shows on the audio monitor that there is sound for output but I get none. My speakers work fine and I even tried a pair of headphones to test the sound. This happened to me recently, my sound just stopped all of the sudden while listening to music. Since then there is no sound. I've tried everything, from disabling the onboard to reinstalling and installing drivers. ANYONE have any tips???

    Did you try the usual steps? Double-clicking the speaker icon in the system tray, and making sure nothing is muted and all the sliders are high?

    Go into Control panel, then sounds and audio devices. Click the audio tab, check the Default device setting, make sure your card is selected.

    Yep. That was the first thing I tried. Didn't work.

    So I read a post on a forum somewhere and I found that it could be my motherboard's ports. Could this be a possibility? Anyone?
