Not knowing your expertise on computers I will try to keep this generalized. You must disable the on board sound of the main board. To do this you must gain access to the bios of your computer. This is usually done by hitting a key at boot up. Usually this key is the delete key "DEL", but sometimes is a function key like F2. It is usually advertised at boot up what key to hit to gain access to the bios setup screen. Once you gain access to the bios screen you should be able to disable the on board sound. If that doesn't fix the problem, you may have a driver problem in windows. Try going into the device manager of windows and uninstalling the driver associated with the sound card, and then reinstall it with the supplied disc that came with the sound card. Expert tip: The drive that usually ships with hardware is not the latest driver, go the to manufactures site and download the newest driver for the best performance. Hope this helps.

I had bought new creative inspire m4500 but instead of four only

I found the solution to my own problem.

(First install the software that is provided in the form of a CD with your SoundBlaster. I had to buy a 5.1VX Creative Sound Blaster for my Creative Inspire M4500 4.1 speakers.)

Go to the folder ‘Creative’ which you may find in your Program Files.
Then double click on the following one after the other:
Surround Mixer
SurMixer (SurMixer.exe)

Now go to EAX.
Select CMSS 3D.
Check on the box ‘Enable CMSS 3D Surround.’
Select ‘Stereo Surround.’

Hope your problem is solved now:))

NO Audio even after putting in own sound card

Difficult to diagnose from afar but go to Start>Run, then type 'dxdiag' without quotes and see if; when it does a sound and video test anything shows up.
