Please clarify whether missing sound is when you play music with your CD-Rom or your computer itself like mp3 or sound effect.

Checked your device manager properly under Start > Control Panel > Systems > Hardware tab > Device Manager > Sound, make sure all device are install from a recognised driver.

Hope this will help

Also check that you have correctly connected the audio cable from the CD Player to the sound card.

Sounds dumb but double click on the speaker on the taskbar, make sure nothing is muted or volume is turned all the way down.

Did PC have an on-board (built-into the motherboard) sound card? If so you may need to disable it for the new sound card to work properly, usually accomplished by a jumper on the MB.

On-board CD (internal). Is the sound cable plugged in to the CD ? Normally only 2 wire (red & black)

check your sound card mfg website. perhaps you have newer digital speakers and the sound is outputting to analog. or vice versa.
