You will have to configure the outputs on the sound card via the driver on the PC. It may only be set to Stereo instead of 5.1.

Built in speakers will not work ive tried everything

Did You Try To Make Shure That The Port Is On For The Speekers To Work? I Ask Because The Speekers Are Connected To The Sound Card Thru A Sound Output Port On The Sound Card And On The PC Somware You Have An App That You Can Open Where You Can Ajust The Settings For The Sound Card Including The INPUT/OUTPUT Ports On It And They Can Be Turned Off And On Indivduly! So Try That And See If That Works!

My computer does not recognize the sound card anymore.

Usually happens when Windows is reinstalled, such as using a Restoration/Recovery disk.

Sometimes Windows just has a brain f@rt.

Looses the address to the Driver file

(All the files on the Harddrive have an Address.
Losing the address could be equated, to loosing an address to someone's house, or a place of business.
Don't know the address of the house, or business, you won't find them)

Suggestion is to download AND install, the driver file for the Soundcard

Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device

The device is the audio chipset.
Do not know which version of Windows is being used, for the Operating System

A heavily misused term

Misused if meaning Integrated Audio.
Audio (Sound) chipset is mounted (Soldered) directly to the motherboard, and is NO soundcard.

A Soundcard is a sound adapter card, that is plugged into the motherboard.

IF it is truly a soundcard, I need the manufacturer's name, and model number of the soundcard. The model number will be on it.

If it is Integrated Audio we will go on...........

[The I/O area of the computer is on the Back of the desktop computer.
The I/O area is part of the motherboard.

I/O stands for Input/Output.
So this means the I/O area, is the area on the motherboard, where Input devices are plugged in, and Output devices are plugged in.

Some common Input devices are the Mouse, and Keyboard.
Some common Output devices are the Monitor, and Speakers.

Speakers. SOUND.
If the audio cables are plugged into an audio port in the I/O area, you are using Integrated Audio.

I/O area. Rectangular area, that also has the sheet metal, I/O Shield surrounding it.

The Horizontal slots on the back of the computer, (In the metal framework), are Expansion Slots.
The back end of an expansion adapter card are seen in these slots, IF one is installed.

A Soundcard is a type of expansion adapter card.
It's a sound adapter card.

IF you truly have a Soundcard, it will be in one of these Horizontal slots ]

My intex headphone not working in new soundcard

HI deepkul,

The headsets should work regardless of the type of sound card,

I would recommend you to check the head set in some other PC and then you will get a confirmation whether it's working or not, if it's working then it's the problem with your sound card and it's not just a problem with the head set but with the sound output.

Hope this helps ..:)

Lg e500 no spdif output

If you open your sound card properties, you have to tell the hardware (soundcard) to use the SPDIF. For some models of Realtek sound cards, it requires and adapter that you plug into the port and offers optical or coaxial. I could not find anything stating that your PC requires it but I dont have the serial number of your PC to find if you have a different version of the soundcard used in your model notebook.

Also, make sure you are using the proper SPDIF cable to your reciever. This is a digital connection so it requires a 3.5mm to standard male coaxial (RCA) cable. If you are using one, then you just need to make sure that your soundcard knows to ouput audio through the SPDIF port.

Hope that offers some help. If you need further assistance, let me know!

I have a Encore 5.1 Sound card and have installed it. My problem is that I don't get a normal sound input when I bring in the output of my cassette player into any of three ports I have in my pc, front,...

When you install the sound card drivers, they disable ALL motherboard sound functions, and enable them on the sound card, meaning you can do the same things, with better quality, you just need to connect everything to the soundcard or it won't work. SO then you cannot connect any sound to the front of the computer anymore, but a soundcard should have plenty of connections on the back side of the PC.

From what I understood from your story, you switched cassette players AND installed a sound card. If I were you I'd first install the sound card drivers, then try to play audio with the old cassette player, and see wether that works. If it does, your new cassette player has another (if at all) output than the old one. Then you'll just have to use the old one. If it does not work, your soundcard is the problem, which seems a bit odd. Soundcards are usually meant to do more than on-board sound, not less. I'd contact your manufacturer and ask wether it's normal this doesn't work, or that the card's broken.

I hope this helps,

All of a sudden my Echo Indigo DJ soundcard will play both virtual CD players on my PCDJ software on one channel. For a while, I had cd 1 on one channel and cd2 on the other. I am using a pig tail plug...

I can run audio on 3 separate channels/outputs of my laptop

I use Tricerasoft Swift Elite DJ software but the areas you need to look at for troubleshooting are probably similar:

1) check the (PCDJ) software settings for selecting the channel outputs of your Indigo DJ on each deck/ player. NOTE: 1/2 and 5/6 are the same physical port (headphone port), while 3/4 and 7/8 are also shared on the Line Out port. So make sure you use for eg. one player uses 1/2, and the other player uses 3/4 ONLY IF you want them running out to separate channels on the mixer

I personally run both my decks off the same channel, ie 3/4 so that my software can do the mixing for me. My mixer only acts as an master control device where everything else connects

2) Make sure you check your IndigoDJ Console (installed to the Windows Start menu under Echo Audio, Indigo DJ), if you have any conflicts or if for some reason one particular channel pair gets inadvertently muted, resulting in no sound coming from the port.

3) I also use my onboad sound card (typically for previewing music or for an auxillary output). This is obviously controlled by the Operating system... in Windows is is through the Sound properties, default sound device. I recommend NOT using Indigo DJ as a default sound card -- but that is a personal preference.

So in this way you actually have 3 outputs for sound

As far as cabling is concerned, it depends on what you are connecting to. I use a 1/8 (mini computer) jack to 1/4 whcih then plugs into a direct box (eleminates any static hum etc), then from the DI box using an XLR cable to the mixer. Your setup may be slightly different.

Hope this helps!

X-530 rear and mid speakers not working

Hi guys.
Right, I am not technically minded at all, and all this talk about updating software and plug-ins baffled me. I bought my Logitech speakers 3 days ago, and happily plugged them into the soundcard, only to be puzzled that only my front speakers and subwoofer worked when I played music or video. I then had a brainwave. Using the 3 in 1 port that logitech provided me with, I got myself a phono to mono lead, which you can get at all good electrical stores, (take the three way box with you if you are stuck) Then proceed to plug the three speaker outputs into the box, colour co ordinated, then the phono end of the phono to mono lead in the box at the other side. Then using the single input, plug it into the input of your Soundcard. My soundcard has 8 inputs, so I just kept trying them all until sound came out through my speakers. A much less technical answer than changing all your drivers, creating profiles, fiddling with the deep insides of your PC. Hope this is of some use to you guys!
