have got into the bios and disabled on board sound and have put the card in the second from bottom as there is something else in the way re installed the drivers but still no sound.in Sound and audio devices every thing is ghosted and there is no volume control .in a test suppled with sound card disc it states
Hardware detected PASSED Wave driver FAILED Midi driver FAILED Mixer driver FAILED DirectSound 3D driver FAILED Also noticed the card clicked in one side but not quite on the other
Hi, try removing and then replacing the card - when replacing do note that soundcards in the agp slot are notoriously hard to push in - make sure it is well seated and the gold contacts are not showing when done. Merry Christmas.
