Hello, So i have a problem with my sound which is the following :
I have formated my pc to make a fresh install of everything.
Since my soundcard(onboard) stoped working for some reason i thought this would fix it (maybe due to driver conflict or what so ever). After reinstalling the drivers the soundcard(onboard) worked, but after a restart it stoped working.
So i thought i would build in my Audigy 2 ZS. After installing the drivers i couldn't hear just a very very low sound....so i turned up my amplifier to maximum and then i heard the music playing but extremely low.

I checked all settings, the ones in control panel, the ones on Windows Media Player, etc. Every sound setting is at maximum and the sound just stays that low, on the Audigy 2 and on the onboard sound card.

Does anyone have an idea what this could be due to ?
please help me this is really frustrating not to be able to listen to music :S

The odds of both sound cards (onboard and daughter card) are highly unlikely. It sounds like you are having a hardware problem with your amplifier and/or speakers. Check the cables to make sure everything is in place. A half plugged audio cable will cause the problem you are having. If the cables check out OK, I'd try testing the sound cards with another set of speakers.

What kind of sound are you getting out of the headphone jack?

Hope this helps,

Magus
