the problem is not with the sound card, I' sure of that. it happened with my first one, thats why I bought a new one. all that works is the headphone jack ion the front of the computer, which connects to the sound card with a wire. Why would this work and not the main connection. I have a Dell Dimensin 8200 pemtium4 2.53GHz 1.5GB ram and a creative audigy SE 7.1-could it be the pci port?
In Control Panel > Sound & Audio Devices select the Audio tab and then in the dropdown menu select your new soundcard as audio playback device. If you use a microphone attached to it as well you can set that there too. Check also the Voice tab settings. There is a hardware tab as well with a test button you can employ.
