This is my first post, so please bear with me.
A couple weeks ago, we had some bad weather here. It caused a "sag" in power, and as a result, blew the power supply in the PC, the satellite receiver for the TV, and the amp in the subwoofer of my Altec system.
Anyway, I got a new power supply, satellite receiver, and I ordered a 5.1 surround sound Logitech X-530 system.
It arrived yesterday afternoon, so I took my time today and hooked it up according to the directions. I found a music file to try and it sounded great for about 1½ minutes into the song! All of a sudden, the sound just shut off! The slider on WMP continued to move, but no sound at all! I tried re-booting, but didn't even have window sounds!
Now I am trying to figure out if it's the sound card that went or the speaker system! I don't have a spare speaker to plug in, so I don't know what to do.
I have checked all the connections, etc........and they all seem fine.
I wonder if doing a system restore to before I hooked up the new speakers would help?!
Any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated!
I have an Abit IS7-E2 MoBo, Win XP Pro, SB Audigy Platinum Sound card, and Logitech X-530 5.1 speakers.
Thanks in advance for all your help.
