Make sure the power coder is pulled before you do any thing.
also borrow a pair of speakers that are known to work

yes there is a way to replace the sound cards.but i don't think they deteriorate.it sounds like three things can
be wrong. one your speakers.your speakers could be at fault .two your cd drive.try a a pair of speaker
that are know to work.with the original drive.

if you can and aren't afraid of opening up your case wich you got to do
to replace anything.borrow a compatible cd drive frome someone that knows that it works fine
also borrow a pair of speakers that are known to work and
take the cords that are hook up to your and cd drive and hook them up to the borrowed drive. you can let
it dangle there instead of putting it in the tower . turn on your computer and wait about 5 min and then try the
cd.if the sound is good problem solved..

the last problem could be that your sound card is bad or a driver is not installed

Connection between CD, EQ, SP technics


Each unit (the EQ and the Processor) should have left/right in/out rca jacks as well as L/R tape in/outs. The EQ or processor use the receiver's tape loop and then provide a tape loop to replace the one they've used on the receiver.

You plug the first unit (let's say the Sound Processor into your receiver/amp as if it were a tape deck (Processor's outs connect to reciever's tape ins (play) while the Processor's ins connect to the receiver's tape outs (record).

Then you chain the EQ off the Processor in the same way (EQ outs connect to Processor's tape ins (play) and EQ ins connect to the Processor's tape outs (record).

Last you connect the tape deck to the EQ as follows. Tape deck outs connect to EQ's tape ins (play) and the tape deck ins connect to the EQ's outs (record).

This will put both the Sound Processor and the EQ in the receiver's tape loop. In order to have all the receiver's source signals routed through them you may have to engage a Tape Monitor switch or button somwhere on your amp which will route the tape loop to your speakers.
