Lost soundcard

By nickc

  1. ok I reformatted and reinstalled WindowsXP and after reinstalled everything the only problem is my sound won't work. well here is exactly what is happening I install the card driver (Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio) and when I reboot I get sound as I should, but that will be all. The card is listed in Device Manager, when I click on something to play that uses windows media player it looks on the screen as if there is sound but there is nothing. can anyone tell how to fix this I have reinstalled the drivers several times.

    Is it the default device in Control Panel - Sound / Audio devices under audio tab ?

    or

    Are you sure you have the right driver for your Windows version ?

    make sure it is not muted in control panel.
    Or perhaps wave source is muted in the mixed under playback?
