i recently got an awe64 soundblaster. i have installed the card and there are no conflicts and there is also no sound. i have checked the cables and they are connected correctly. i have removed all the software and drivers thinking i have instlled them improperly, but plug and play puts the same ones back in. now, i put the old sound card back in and it started playing sound, so i put the new card an i cant hear crap. so, anyone out there have a suggestion on how to fix this problem. my system is a amdk6 233mx, if that make a diff. i have also noticed that the little sound icon in the systems tray is not the with the awe32 but is with the old,
any suggestion greately appreciated,

You might want to check the usual two places:

Make sure that you delete your old soundcard. The old and the new
often conflicts with each other even if you disable the old one.

Make sure you're not running more than one program which access
the music files. When two programs are running they conflict.

Did the soundblaster come with any testing software? A volume control
panel that you can check to make sure all the volume's turned up?

Are the output plugs defective? No real way to determine this unless
you switch cards.

Provided the software drivers are installed properly under Device Manager, you can get the volume control in the system tray by the following.  Check the Multimedia icon in the control panel, make sure the option to show the volume control is selected, and press OK.  Even if it was already selected, press OK, it should make the volume control appear.
