[b [size=4]hello, i am new to this forum and this is my first post. my problem is my sound card. i recently purchased a 514dx 5.1 sound expert optical card. made by trust. when i first installed the card it worked fine.
i have a 6 speaker set up and i had a disc that came with the card with a program to test the 5.1 etc. anyway everything was great until one morning i got up and hey presto no sound from my speakers. i did the usual checks for wiring etc and all was fine. i then unplugged the jacks from the sound card and put them into the ones that are already built in to my comp. worked fine. which is weird because i disabled the onboard sound via the bios. in the bios it gave me the option to disable onboard azalea97 which i did. but even though i disabled it it still works. my problem is that my soundcard no longer appears to work, and im wondering how i can test the card or try anything to get it to work again. (there are no conflicts in device manager for audio controllers etc). any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Have you check the Device Manage to see if the old card is Disabled and the new card is Enabled? Also check the Sound and Audio Devices in the Control Panel and make sure the appropirate device is selected.
