No sound in speakers

Specs: Microsoft Windows 7 Professionnel, i7 4790k/32Gig Corsair Vengeance
I used to run zalman 5.1 headphones with 5x 3.5 jack in the souncard, with a splitter to have sound in my speakers when i was tired of wearing headphones.

I bought the same zalman 5.1 but this time the USB ones, leaving my souncard empty. These headphones are working fine.

Thing is when i connect the 3.5 jack speakers in the sound card, nothing come out of it except when i do testing on them. Looked everywhere to raise sound with no luck....what's next?

Recently did a clean install of win 7, with souncard drivers installed as per mobo manufacturer instructions.

Don't you hate it when your pc....ummm, nevermind.

Hi Buffy, your description is unclear.

Regarding 5x 3.5 Jack, what does 5x refer to?

Suggests you are now connecting to both USB and Soundcard which could be cause of the problem.

If an (unpowered) USB splitter is used, it may not pass power through to device(s) that require it. This is why powered usb hubs are often suggested.

USB to Jack plug adaptors are available.

Check out the Audio settings.
Google 'windows 7 sound settings' on how to access.

Good Luck - Keep us posted.

On my first post 5x 3.5 meant 5 times 3.5 jacks

My old headphones had five jacks on them, 3.5 jacks to achieve surround 5.1 sound.

My new headphones are usb, and i plug one 3.5 jack for ordinary stereo speakers in one jack adapter\connector on the soundcard

I removed the usb for my headphone restarted my computer and the sound went back to my speakers, i then shut off the computer plug my headphones, restarted the comp...i have sound in the headphones and lost it on the speakers...

Thank you for helping me...greatly appreciated!
