Creative Live card; do I need wires from card to MOBO?

    I just installed a Creative Labs Live card. I thought being in the PCI slot
    it would have sound immediately upon being installed. I have no sound when
    attempting to play music off the HDD. I notice there are pins for on the
    card, one of which I know is for connecting the card to a CD rom, but am I
    supposed to also be connecting some wire from the card to the MOBO?

    I should have told you I guess. The card is installed in system properties
    with no exclamation point. It says working properly.

  3. No. If the motherboard has onboard sound then it may still be in use.
    Try disabling it in the BIOS.

    Well, I uninstalled my new ATI radeon and removed it from the MOBO
    physically and then reinstalled the sound card. It came right up with no
    problems at all. I had noticed that the new video card installed several
    things under the Sound Properties in Windows Device Properties.

    I will now try to reinstall the video card now that I have the sound card
    working right. But I think I am going to have to get a less demanding video
    card. This ATI radeon x800 256 bit is probably not going to work well with
    my old Asus MOBO.

    Did you remember to plug in the speakers?
