Re: Sound issue
Check all of your connections first off. Then if this doesn't fix it, look through every setting for the sound card including the ones in the control panel to make sure they are up. Where my sound card has it's own control panel, you can adjust the volume for each speaker manually and bypass the Windows controls, so you might want to check those settings if you have them.
