View Full Version : SoundBlaster Problem

11-17-03, 08:00 PM
i took my soundblaster live platnium 5.1 w/ line drive and put it in my good computer and i'm not getting any sound out of it. my mobo has onboard sound. i didn't know if that would have anything to do with it or not. i've installed drivers for the SB and it's still not working but the sound works on the onboard sound device. everything is hooked up right. anyone have any ideas? oh yeah, i'm running win2k pro now.

Also make sure your speakers are connected to the SB live not the onboard sound. I know it sounds stupid but I made that stupid mistake;)

Control Panel > Sound and Audio Devices(named something different in 2000 i think) > Audio Tab

In the dropdown boxes select the soundblaster device.
