I have a soundblaster audigy SE 24bit

something like this http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/474996-REG/Creative_Labs_70SB057000001_Soundblaster_Audigy_SE _4L.html

and i have 2 regular desktop speakers. the sound did work before but i cant remember what i did (if anything) to make it work. youtube and vlc both do the same thing there is no voice unless the background noise is really loud.

hey problem solved i am an idiot. i went and tried to unplug the speakers to see if the other colors would work and as i unplugged it the sound came through so i guess i have to keep the speaker unplugged a little for it to work in both speakers... sorry for the trouble lol.
