No sound coming from sound card

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Having a problem with the sound card in my system...just bought the Asus XONAR DG 5.1 PCI sound card, and the motherboard I have is the Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3...

My computer does recognize the sound card and I did install the most up to date drivers and before you ask, yes, I did put the speakers in the right input on the back of the sound card (the speakers are the Bose Companion 2 Series 2's)....could it just be that the sound card is dead? Thoughts or help? I know next to nothing when it comes to computer audio....

Try enabling the PCM function in the main tab of the Audio Center. Could be a lot of things but try that first.

And of course make sure you selected the correct input in the Windows sound settings

No prob, it threw me off too when i first got my DG, PCM needs to be selected for your PC speakers but can be disabled when using headphones.
Thanks for the +REP btw smile.gif
