Could someone help, please

Well basically, i bought a basic soundcard (SoundBlaster Audigy SE 7.1) in order to replace my onboard which i thought broke. I put in the soundcard, which by the way, did not fit totally, it went in, but there were some pins not totally inside of the PCI Slot, but i turned on the computer, and windows deteced it, installed drivers for it and everything.

So i set my playback devices to SB Audigy by right-clicking the sound icon, ....and no sound plays. i made sure everything was plugged in, still no sound

i have windows 7 64bit

The little sound icon in the corner looks like it's play sound, but no sound is coming out at all... this was the same EXACT problem that i had before.

Have you tried the Microsoft sound diagnostics page? It's here ( and you might find it helpful, particularly since you've already tried reinstalling the drivers.
