Sound card not working - please help Tags: Sound Cards Device Manager Components Last response: November 26, 2006 9:45 PM in Components Share harty23690 November 25, 2006 6:15:51 PM Have just reinstalled Windows. Installation went well, installed drivers etc etc. But no sound.... I have 2 sound cards, 1) Onboard 'SoundMAX' 2) HDA Digital Xplosion DTS CONNECT Device manager reports them as installed correctly, working and with no conflicts. However when I go to the sound properties in the control panel, it displays 'No audio device' rather than the list of two that I would expect. Short of reinstalling Windows again I can think of nothing to do, so any help would be greatly appreciated.
