I took a cd rom, and hhd from my old Pentium 233Mhz, and put it into my Pentium 2 400Mhz. Now before I took out the hardware I check out the old Pentium, and had sound with the old sound card. Before I took apart the Pentium 2 I had sound with the sound card in it. When I set up the Pentium 2 I install, and re- installed the sound drivers, from a copy I burn from the hhd of my Pentium 4, because that hhd use to be in the Pentium 2.
When I go into the device manager, it tells me the sound card is working properly. The icon is in the tray as it should be. I have a sound blaster card with a modem. I check the volume controls. All the volume is up on volume and wave, and there are no checks in the mute box.
When I use the modem I can hear it dialing and connecting so the speakers do work, as well as the jack the plug go in. In the old Pentium, the modem and sound card were seperate, but I don't see how that would have anything to do with it. I wonder if the hhd would have something to do with it, but I don't see how with that either.
I check and recheck my speaker wires, but they are all hook in right, and the power to the speaker is on.
Has anyone out there had a problem like this, and know of a solution?

usually when something like that happens, i uninstall the drivers and reinstall them again. um, this harddrive, it was used in the old computer, and now it's in a new one? the os already installed? if so, it may need to redect everything. possibly there's an irq difference if so, you may want to double check. meaning, it may want it's own irq, not the one the bios gives it in the new machine, if i'm getting this straight. might try to change the bios to manual and set the irq to legacy, not plug and play. either that, or reinstall the whole thing from scratch, taking out all cards but video, and adding them back one by one after installing drivers and making sure they work right.before going on to the next card.

Thanks for your post, that sound like something worth checking out .... I'll have to look at the IQR see what is up with that.
