Sound issues

By Jeffac2 ·
Have sound issues, this is a list of all the things i have done and still have no sound. The sound card shows in the device manager and indicates it is working properly.

-done all troubleshooting tips from
-have tried 2 sets of speakers and 2 headsets
-checked to see if the cable was in the correct audio out port
-checked in the bios to see if the on board audio was disabled
-downloaded the latest drivers from creative and installed them
-checked to see if the sound card was correctly inserted into the pci slot

There might be another setting in the bios dealing with IRQ sharing but i have no idea. Any thoughts as to why i have no sound?

Changed the Resource Settings used. This is a very common thing to happen and would be the first step in testing rather than the last.

Though some Creative Sound Cards Do Not work with the EP45 Chip Sets.
