So here is the deal, for some reason I CANT hear sound from my speakers.

I can hear sound from my headphones, but not from the speakers. I tested 2 diff speakers and 2 diff sound cards, one onboard and the other SB Live. When I click on the sound wizard in my sound mixer, it then starts to test my speakers by playing sounds from diff speakers to determine what kind of a set up I have like 5.1 7.1 …etc The interesting thing is I can hear the test sounds, but I CANT hear music or anything else playing from my speakers.

I don’t have anything muted, I checked. I tried restarting, that didn’t help ether….i don’t know what to do.

Please help.

oh yeah soz , go ti the run command and tpe dxdiag and run the sound tests there , also is there any chance that the computer is set up for 7.1 when you only have 2.1 or 5.1

ok plug the speakers into the sb live if not already , then go into bios and disable on board sound

alternitively if you wanna keep onboard sound on go to the cp and load sound and audio devices , then go to the audio tab and see if all the playback options are set to the sb live ,

if this dosent work disable onboard sound in the bios and see if this helps
