hey

my sound cut out the other day. I researched a couple of topics on the internet, which pursuaded me to buy a new soundcard.

So now I have a new soundcard and still no sound.

i've checked all the drivers etc etc etc tryied updating drivers, checking mute etc etc

when i go to play certain sounds (quicktime player is one of them) A constant clicking sound comes on, and it doesn't stop. Even when you close the application (quicktime) down. Until you restart.

I've made sure the soundcard is securely fitted into the motherboard but still no joy.


Does anyone have any idea of whats going on as it's getting me down bad :whistling:


REALLY appreciate any help people can give me

Have you checked the speakers themselves? Maybe your speakers are physically broken. Try plugging them into a computer you know emits sound...

oh I forgot to add, I bought new speakers first, and threw my old ones away. And now figured that it wasnt the speakers, so wasted money :whistling:

Try to move the card to another pci slot. Go to device manager and uninstall all the drivers in Sound, Video and game Controllers. Now install the drivers that you got with your new card.
