    It sounds like you had an old sound card then upgraded... You may need to unistall the old drivers for the old card in device manager and install the new ones that came with your new card. also you may need to configure your sound driver in the correct configuration(i.e. my motherboard has 3 ports and i can either hook up 1. audio in, audio out and microphone 2. front two, center, and rear...) all in all is sounds like a good card$$$

    I don`t know if this`ll help, but it might.

    Go to your control panel and double click on sounds and audio devices. In the window that appears, click on the audio tab. Make sure your new soundcard is selected in the sound playback and the sound recording panels. It may still be set to default. Click apply/ok.

    See if that helps.

    it seems that the current pci slot i had the sound card in was giving soon as i moved the sound card to a diff pci slot it worked great..and dam logitech z500 with xfi extreme sound card is loud as hell i can hear the music from the streets outside...
