Not sure where's best to ask this, but basically, I've taken my
soundcard from my old PC and installed it in my new one. My Windows XP
recognises it, recognises the drivers, and mentions it in several
places (Control Panel/Sounds etc.)
But no sound comes out, whether it be playing a midi, an mp3, a CD,
whatever. Checked volumes and speakers etc. a dozen times.
There wasn't a soundcard as such before. There was something called
Realtek(?) - I dont really know what that's all about, but anyway,
before I installed the Soundblaster card, I went into the BIOS
settings and turned the "onboard sound" off. (That did as intended
because I checked afterwards.)
It may be a silly question, but I don't have to attach any cables from
the new soundcard to the motherboard do I? Or to the CD drive? I got
the impression it wasn't necessary, but could be wrong!
Thanks for any suggestions!
