I like my Creative Sound Blaster Audigy2 ZS SB0350 so I took it from my old pc and installed it on a newly built windows 7 64 bit edition pc but there was no sound. I installed the driver properly no exclamations in device manager but no sound.
I uninstalled the device from the device manager, restarted the pc and got my sound going.
