    Hello Mr Krish..

    Thank You for the information on the sound card problem. Still I have no sound. replaced the sound card without doing the bios as you recommended. For a new one, after that do I need to program it ? Also would like to know where goes the wire connector in the card, I suppose it goes to the cd player.

    Thank You Raf

For old card if it is on board sound then just you need to disable sound in bios.
For that when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or del or ALT+F2 key to enter in bios then go to advanced and disable sound or audio .Then save settings and exit.
But if old sound is not on board means it is pci sound card then you need to open cpu cabinet and remove sound card from it then install new card into pci slot and install it';s driver from disk which comes with sound card.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

My sound has stop working how can I get it back


Have you recently upgraded from a lower version of Windows? If you have, the computer might have been made especially for Windows XP (for example) and certain things aren't compatible with your computer. If you haven't and you bought the computer with Windows 7, either make sure your sound is on, try some additional speakers, or contact the seller. Hope this helps. Get back in touch. Steven :D

Creative 5.1 sound card not supported by WinXP and up


It might be true, since the sound card was made for the Win9k kernel. It differs from NT Kernel in the core. The 9k kernel's core is MS-DOS and the NT Kernel has it's very own core. Usually 95/98/ME software does work in XP and if it doesn't, can be updated to a newer version. But hardware is a different thing. You should first check if there's an updated version of your driver for Windows XP, but I prefer to a hardware problem, since two of the speakers work and the others don't. I recommend buying a new sound card if there isn't an updated version of your driver.

Old speakers won't work with new computer! :-(


Trying going into the speakers settings on your integrate sound in control panel and see if you can set it to 5.1 instead of the default 7.1.

Also do you have other speaker to try and plug into the card to make sure the card is installed and working?

Will my boston accoustics ba735 speakers work with a dell laptop?


We also have a Gateway Computer purchased in 2001 with the Boston Digitanl BA735 speakers. We ran into a similar problem when we upgraded from Windows ME to Windows XP, with no sound after the upgrade. After consulting with computer stores and "Geek Squad", it was finally determined that Windows XP set the speakers for analog not digital. Once that was reset, our sound returned. Hope this works for you.

Hi Tom,

I just got the dell vostro 410 and had the same problem... So I unpluged the digital cable, got a 1/8 male to 1/8 male cord, plugged it into the analog in on the back of ba735 and the other end into my headphone jack on the front of my system and the speakers work great again......... I have XP Prof. installed as os. Hope this helps... by the way 1/8 is the plug that is on the opposite end of your ba735 digital cable that plugs into your computer, just need a cable with that plug on both ends...
Good Luck!

Both right speakers not working


Try to interchange the connections of left channel and the right channel. If there is sound now in the right channel and no sound in the left channel it means that you have problem in the sound card. Otherwise if the problem remains the same you have a defective speaker on your right speaker system but don't forget to take a second look on your speaker wiring.
