I purchased a HP Media Center PC. The PC user guide said if I had HP Klipsch Pro Media 2.1 speakers that I would need a Creative SoundBlaster Audigy 2 ZS card so I bought one and installed it. Now my speakers won't work. Are they not compatible after all? The speakers will only work with headphones and even then I get a slight popping sound. (I installed the update for that card and it did not stop the popping.)
The 2.1 configuration choice for the sound card does not show a subwoofer, just 2 satellite speakers and it won't let me calibrate.
The speakers worked with my old PC and the sound card works with cheap desk top speakers so I do not believe there is a problem with the hardware. Is that sound card really only compatible with a desktop, 5.1, 6.1 or 7.1 system? :confused2
PS. I can't get a response from customer service from either company yet so I am hoping someone here can help.
PSS. I am a novice, speak clearly and slowly.
