[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.
