Sound card fritz

By jackray ·
This question is in two parts. The first is regarding my sound card. I can't tell if the card went out or the speaker (woofer-built in amp) blew.
When I flip the switch on the sub-woofer (into which all the speakers are plugged), i get the power sound in the bass speaker. There's no power indicator light so I can't really tell if it's on. I was listening to an MP-3 one night when it just quit. I've tried plugging the connections into another computer and get nothing. Tried plugging another set of speakers into this sound card, nothing. Device manager says the device is working properly. I don't want to buy another one just to find out it's not the sound card.
Second question is somewhat related. The motherboard has a built in sound card (?) I think. it's got outlets on the back for speakers, mike, input, etc. But I can't figure out how to tell if it will push a 5.1 set up. Oh yeah, it's an ASUS P5GD1. Not sure if I've told you enough. Let me know if more info is needed.
