    There is no sound coming out of my speakers. I have to restart my pc to get sound to come out. It goes out while im playing world of warcraft. When I try to watch a video on youtube it just plays the first 2 secs with no sound and stops. Its no my speakers because they work after i restart my computer. I have also updated my sound driver.

    Reboot the PC and see if the sound works correctly after the install. What type of sound card do you have?

    This is a general instructions the same as if fitting your card :) fi you havn't been in a pc before it is not that hard just make sure the power is off before you start and unpluged :)

    The sound card, like most PCI cards, can be installed in any PCI slot. The EPoX 8RDA+ has six PCI slots. They are white and run vertically in this picture and are circled in blue. I chose the slot circled in red in the picture, which is PCI slot 2. As with the PCI slot selection for the sound card, the only reason for choosing this particular PCI slot was for cooling purposes, to space out the cards within the interior since they all generate an amount of heat.

    Remove the slot cover on the rear of the PC corresponding to PCI slot 2, which is the third slot cover from the left in the Antec KS-282 computer case (when looking at the case from the back). The sound card inserts into the PCI slot with direct downward pressure, just as the video card inserted into the AGP slot. The PCI cards are keyed to the PCI slots so they will insert facing in only one direction. Secure the sound card into the PCI slot with a slot screw, but don't over tighten so much that you might twist the card within the PCI slot. Here's how the interior looks with the sound card inserted into the PCI slot 2 and the card secured with the slot mounting screw. The Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS sound card comes with a second slot cover to be used if you plan on connecting a joystick. If this is used then one of the PCI slots is no longer useable, but that may not be much of an issue. I find I don't need a joystick, even though I enjoy the occasional computer game or edutainment software.

    Here's how the rear of the computer case looks now that the sound card has been added.

    Maybe it is some thing in startup causing the problem disable all startup items and see if you still have the problem.

    The easiest is to do the following:
    1. start --> run --> msconfig
    2. Click on the "startup" tab (furthest right)\
    3. Unclick all items you don't want to load when windows starts.
