Audio issue I need help with

    I have an old SoundBlaster Audigy Platinum sound card. Earlier today I was going to capture some streaming Real audio using my creative recorder. Up to this point, my audio was working fine. I set the recorder to record "What you hear", in other words, all sound going through speakers. I hit record and pressed play on the Real player and got nothing. I tried Winamp after that (just playing an MP3) and no sound. I tried video; you get the picture. So, I figured an issue with my sound card or speakers. I run all the diagnostics on the sound card, nothing. Device manager says it is working fine. Nothing seems burned out on the card itself, all connections are tight. So, I hook up my headphones to see if it is the speakers. No sound. Now, I figure it has to be the sound card. I shutdown, enabled the on-board sound through BIOS, hook up my headphones to that jack, no sound. At this point I am at a loss. Anyone have any suggestions aside from formatting and reinstalling to see if it is simply a conflict of programs? Ohh, also, I just installed Real before this happened, I uninstalled it, restarted, nothing again.

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions or help!

    Dude, dont mean to patronise but have you checked the windows volume control (start/all programs/accessories/entertainment) to ensure nothing is muted ?

    After that i suggest a system restore to before the date the problem occurred.
