Computer and sound have been fine for awhile.
Yesterday the audio goes out.

How do I know if the soundcard or amplifier are still good?
In Control Panel audio, SPDIF shows activity but no sound.

Any ideas?

process of elimination, meaning the hard way
Might wanna take out the card and uninstall the drivers for it, and see if the onboard sound works, if it does then it seems the card is dead, if it doesn't, then it seems like the speakers are.

yes to no avail.
They seemed to stop working after Vista 64 service pack 2 was downloaded and installed automatically.

That may be my last resort but I was hoping for an easier solution.

Fiddled with Creative settings for too long.
Removed the X-FI and reset the on-board audio,
updated drivers and presto. SOUND.

Now I sit with a Xtreme Gamer X-Fi that I'm not sure if it works anymore.

All the problems started when Vista 64 Service Pack 2 installed.


I may be done with Creative here on out.
