Default NO sound Windows 7... Z5500.. New Claro Soundcard

My problem is no sound.
In bottom right of windows 7-Upon hovering over the speaker with an X through it, it says No speakers or headphones are plugged in.

I click it, and troubleshoot Speakers - HTO CLARO (no jack information avaliable)

It says: the audio device is disabled Not fixed (red X)

I got windows 7 32 bit, and then my creative sound card apparently did not have a driver for it. So i went and bought an HTI Claro

This came with a driver, which I installed.

Windows 7- 32 bit
Z5500 5.1 Surround
Ud3r motherboard
HTI Claro which I put in a PCI 1 slot..
Standard driver from CD (tried to update through device manager it says its up to date)

The z5500 has 3 cords, Front (green) rear(black) center/sub(orange)
I put these cords directly into the Claro via the front, side surround, and center/s.woofer spots respectively. Which is slots 3,4,5 according to the manual.

Under device manager.. I have
>High Definition Audtio Device
They both say they are working properly ...
Dunno what else to tell you guys, thanks for helping

Look into Sound options, does it have multiple outputs?

Couldn't you just download the Creative drivers online??

Link doesn't work. Why did you need a whole another sound card?
