No sound

Out of the blue, I get no sound at all from any source. from CD, or LP record through Audacity, or FreeCell errors. I've looked at the many postings on this subject and tried several checks but to no avail. Is it possible my Creative sound card has failed? How do I check if it has?

The creative software usually includes an audio control panel of some kind, maybe worth a look to see if the settings are as they should be, no mutes, volume levels etc. there is also a Windows Audio "service" that should not be disabled.

You are the greatest. Went through Creative's troubleshooter and found that plugs into card were incorrect. I'd had to mess around with things at the back of my machine and obviously - stupidly - put the jacks in the wrong sockets. Oh dear.

Easily done when groping around.Glad it's sorted
