I have no sound except a small bass "thump" on start up and shutdown from my sub. I am using an ASUS A8N32-SLI deluxe, Windows XP w/ SP2, Creative Audigy 2 ZS sound card, and Creative Inspire P7800 speakers. The device manager shows no indications of trouble and says my card is working properly and is enabled. However, when I go to the Sound and Audio devices through the control panel, it says there is no audio device. I have removed and reinstalled the drivers. I have reconnected the speakers. I even removed my sound card and removed its software, but the in-board Realtek card does the same thing with the same result. Everything is powered and apparently working correctly according to the little lights and Windows. What do I do now?

Thanks,
Jeff

Almost sounds like your onboard audio is still on, and is conflicting with your soundcard. Go into your bios settings and turn off the onboard audio (or change it to PCI, whichever is applicable). Hopefully this will solve your problem. If not, post back and let us know, and we'll continue to help you!

Hope this helps!

I tried turning off the onboard sound through bios. Any time I try to run anything that has to do with the soundcard I get an "audio device supported by this application is not detected" message, but it still says the card is enabled and working correctly in device manager. Also, I ran the Creative diagnostics that came with the soft ware. The hardware is detected, and the soundfont and DirectSound 3D "Pass", but the MIDI, Wave, Mixer and Mixer Settings all fail.

Hmm....have you tried putting the sound card in a different PCI slot? I'm no pro, but I know that the PCI slots share resources with some of the other things on the mobo, and if you have an AGP slot, that you shouldln't put anything in the 1st (top) PCI slot (at least that's what I was told).

If it were me, I'd uninstall the sound card, remove it from the machine, reboot, uninstall the onboard audio, reboot, then reinstall the sound card in a different PCI slot.

First, I'd go through all my settings, both in Windows (via control panel, sounds and audio devices), AND through my software that came with the soundcard and check to make sure that something's not muted. It's happened to me before, something got muted (can't remember exactly what) and my mic quite working! Took me a week to figure it out.

If none of this works, then I'm stumped! Let us know if this works! If not, we'll get someone else to help you!
