Hey, havent been here for a while. A few days ago my sound card decided it would just stop working. I was playing music in windows media player, songs that i always play, and it just stopped making sound. I tried reinstalling drivers and all, hasnt done anything, in the meantime im using a very poor sound card from my old computer, and i desperatley want to get my good sound card working as it has 5.1 support and i just got a 5.1 system i can connect it to. I thought i might have blown the sound cfard or something but i go into device manager and it still appears there and says the device is currently functioning and all.

Can you elaborate on the "reinstalling drivers and all" bit? Does that include uninstalling the device and letting Windows find it again next boot?

EDIT: Is the "good" sound card a discrete or onboard device?
