Control Panel > Sound and Audio Devices > Audio Tab > Select your sound card.

See if that works.

Looks like the problem may be more serious than first thought though.

It has somehow affected your keyboard and in particular your caps lock key. To have a sound card do that requires a magnet put to your hard drive... that'll fix it i think

CHICKS WITH NO MOUTHS! :shock: THAT'D BE A TRAGEDY!

How would they.....

Oh, wait, back to the sound-card...

Ok, I think a mate had a card with on-board sound that you had to enable or disable in the bios. Was a while ago, I just recall it taking us ages to find it as well.

What brand is the motherboard?
There should be a website with the manuals, I know AOPEN's website has really good support.

I agree with Dugy, most likely a setting in the bios. Check your mainboard manual, it should have details on it.

CAMPO WAKE UP DAZ IS MISSING YOU HAHAHAHAHA

SHUT THE FARK UP DAZ :lol: :lol: :lol:

I know nothing about computers so I'll just dribble shit :lol: :lol:

One quick question, does the mother board have jumpers on it ??
On my old computer it had some and I had to move them to enable and disable the sound card...

Just had a quick look at a few random boards.

They either refer to changing a jumper switch on the board or a setting in the bios.

What MB was it anyway?

due to the temperature today the motherboard may wel have a jumper on........
nah serious its a msi board, all i did was fit new sound blaster card (& drivers etc)

then remove card and did full re install

no sound :?:

If you have done a complete reinstall and still no sound then it sounds (no pun intended) like a BIOS setting.

Have you gone to your device manager to see all devices are installed properly? (NOTE: You could also disable the offending sound card in device manager)

i reckon elorian is right, i would think its still trying to use the software for the old card!, diabling the device should fix it

There may be an even easier explanation... are you sure you have plugged your speakers into the right plug on the right sound card... it is just a thought tho

Most of the time it is a driver issue. if you still have the old card, put it in and start windows. It will most probably install the drivers automatically and ask to restart. let it restart. once it has restarted and you are in windows, go to control pannel and select the option to add/remove hardware. follow the prompts to remove the hardware(soundcard that is) this will also disable the card and most of the time remove the drivers as well.
Once that is done shut down and remove the card.
Next bit with the bios for MSI motherboards, you need to enable the sound chip. Save your settings and boot into windows.
do the same thing. Go to control Panel add remove hardware. remove the sound card and restart. Once it restarts it should reinstall the card. give it the drivers and all. hope this fixes the problem.

My problem was i never got the sound to work right on mine. Must be because i have my CPU overclocked which is affecting the PCI bus speed, which in turn will not let the sound card work right.
So i just put in An audigy card and that seems to be handling the higher PCI speeds.

Let us know what happens.

Flashed your bios recently?
Just do all of the above and I'm sure the answer will lie therein
