I am using a Rocketfish 5.1 sound card to send optical out to a receiver. Two speakers and sub is connected to receiver. The sound card is set at 2/2.1 channel. All was working hunky dory until I dismantled the computer to go water cooling. After I put everything put back together, I get no sound. The sound card gets recognized properly and I get all the functionality the sound card provides. But it does not appear to be sending any signal to the receiver. I looked at the SPDIF/O of the card and it got a red light. It seems the card is expecting speakers to be directly hooked up to it - as if digital output is not working. I installed/uninstalled the card and driver, but so far nothing seems to be working. Any help will be appreciated.

EDIT: I do not know what really fixed it. I took the card out and reseat it. Installed only the drivers instead of drivers and utility. Connected it to the receiver and it started working.
