Hello.

I have a few problems with my computer.
I have installed sound, specifically KX drivers for creative live 5.1.
I have an MSI motherboard, with soundcard already encorporated.
I bought a Soundcard from Creative. Creative Live 5.1.
But apparently it plays the beginning sound when i log on to windows,
then when I open up an mp3 on windows media player, it "plays", but no sound is coming out. Any reason it's doing this? Any suggestions would help.
Thank you.

Hey, I downloaded Winamp and still, nothing happens. Plays normally, but no sound coming from speakers.
None are muted.
Thanks.

Please check Device manager....anything there (yellow !s)?

Also

Start > Run
eventvwr.msc

look under APPLICATIONS for RED Xs that occur around the time while attempting to play a sound.

And, just so we're certain....mediaplayer has as separate sound level control from the windows sound level--so you boosted both?

I found the problem. It was caused by the KX driver. I played around with the settings and it worked. Had nothing to do with the settings in control panel. Sorry for wasting your time, guys. And thanks a bunch.
