Default No Sound on New Mobo... HELP!

hey all,

i just installed my new Asus Rampage Formula motherboard two nights ago... and i just went to hook my speaker back up... and to my surprise... nothing!
i get zero sound outta this board... i used the mobo driver CD to install the Soundmax Drivers and they seemed to install fine... and im using the SupremeFX II sound card that it came with, its plugged into my PCI slot and lit up...
but i dont know if my comp is recognizing it... or if its not recognizing the speakers that im plugging in...
i know its not my speakers because i plugged them into my ipod and they worked...
does anyone have any suggestions for how to start troubleshooting this?
i just want sound!
thanks - RK

You installed the onboard sound chip's drivers/software as well as a separate card but... The first thing to look at is found in the bios setup namely the option to disable the onboard sound there as well as disabling it in the device manager. If the card is good you should then hear sound right away.

Seeing as it has asus.com in the link, I'm assuming it probably came from asus
but I'm guessing the link was Softpedia?
