    Could be a faulty cord try changing this but you might have already when changing the speakers.
    The other thing to check which would be useful to know is then it is half way in, although the sound comes out of both speakers is it a mono or stero signal. Try playing a CD that is heavily panned (Jimi Hendrix used this quite heavily and noticeably as some can be hard to tell) and adjust the balence using the sound manager in control pannel to see if you are getting a different signal from each speaker.
    Try going into the bios and see what settings there are for the onboard sound. If it supports 5.1/7.1 etc. and you can change this make sure it is on 2.1. Also, make sure the cord is in the right line out socket.
    Hope this helps.

    um ok i'll try that... but if not work i'll return!

    could it have been a voltage blow or something like that?

    That is unlikely as they are integrated and still send a signal. Im not saying its not but if it was it would be likely there would be other damage as the voltage would have affected the whole motherboard.

    If the problem continues, try installing the card in a different PCI slot, may have bad contacts. Charlie
