For some strange my sound has stopped fuctioning, I dont think there is anything wrong with my sound card. But I cant be sure. If anyone can help please I would be grateful.

PS I dont know if this is on the right forum but I hope so. And the sound card Im using is a SoundBlaster 24-Live card....

There was nothing yellow in the Device manager. And it just went dead for some strange reason. My brother shut it off from the back, and I didnt know so when I cut it back on it was just dead, there was nothing coming out the speakers.

It didnt say anything about it decting the sound card, but when i uninstalled it, it made me reboot, upon start up the sound card drivers where installed.

I dont think the sound card is fried, i just think that it somehow got reset to some weird default setting and thats why its not working but I cant figure out what....

what do you mean? i assume you mean the "new h ardware found" deal didn't come up...but what do you mean about the "sound card drivers were installed"

well i went into the device manager as you said, went under the driver tab and did uninstall driver. It asked me to reboot my computer and I did so. When I went back into the device manager it said this device is working properly.

Oh okay, I was a lil confused. But I just tried what you said, and that didnt seem to work either. When i rebooted my computer the Sound Blaster live 24-bit was stilll there. So i tried to uninstall it and not reboot and it was still there. My mother board has a sound card on it called SoundMax Intergrated Digital Audio, should i try uninstalling that one. Maybe there conflicting?

hehe...i wish you had mentioned that....they are almost deffinitly conflicting...restart the computer and get into the bios(usually with f2 or del during boot)..now look for a section called "on board perripherals" or something like that...and look for the onboard audio...disable that...then save the changes and boot....
