This happens with any movie I try. Voices are either extremely quiet or none at all when my speakers are plugged into my sound card (creative sound blaster audigy). But when I plug the speakers into the motherboard, I get perfectly clear sound. The drivers are updated, but the card is from 2008 (same age as the motherboard). Its a new problem so I'm thinking the sound card is dying, but its weird that its only voices that I can't hear.

And my other question is that, when I remove the sound card and plug my speakers into the motherboard, I get no sound. How can I make it so that I can use the motherboard audio but with the sound card removed.

System Specs:
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Motherboard: evga nforce 750i sli FTW
Graphics Card: evga geforce gtx 560 TI FPB
Sound Card: Sound Blaster Audigy (don't know what edition)
Power Supply: Corsair Professional Series Gold: AX850

Try uninstalling the drivers for the sound card after removal, and make sure the drivers for the on board are up to date. Might also want to try uninstalling the onboard drivers, and just using the soundcards-the drivers may be clashing.

I don't get audio drivers from my motherboard but from my graphics card. In add and remove programs its called NVIDIA HD Audio Driver 1.2.22.1. I have an evga motherboard and an evga card, so is this why I get my audio driver from my video driver download?

Did it worked before when watching movies on the same sound card or not? How about online videos?

I can't seem to tell with online videos, the onboard sounds a little bit clearer. But its most apparent with DVD's. Its an old card that is discontinued so I'm thinking about getting this sound card as a replacement.

Depending on the system and hardware, some onboard sounds are disabled once the sound card is recognized or properly installed and is use as default. While other onboard are needed to be disabled manually to avoid conflict. I'm wondering how you have switch audio ports for onboard/soundcard from your speakers. There are control panel/settings for any sound card installed to change output channel (SPDIF, 5.1, Surround) and equalizer, presets, volume control. Playing them on different media software could also make a difference. Try VLC.
