Help with SoundBlaster

  1. Hey. One day, while using my AC'97 sound just stopped. I thought it was the AC'97, so I went out and bought a new one. I bought a SoundBlaster Live 5.1 PCI card. It installed fine, but for some reason I still don't hear any sounds. It has no device conflicts or anything. The problem is that when I go into "Sounds and Multimedia", it says there is no preferred playback device for sound playback..can anybody help me? :(

    When you put in the Soundblaster did you install the Drivers? Also was your AC'97 onboard? You may want to disable it in the bios.

    Sounds like a driver issue. I would reinstall them, but I wouldn't have both sound devices enabled on the system...
