Do you have the cable for analog CD audio installed? It's a thin cable that connects the CD directly to the soundcard.

I plugged the cable in but theres still no sound. It goes in the volume control socket right? If since i did the sound test and it works, but i cant play anything else, does that mean that the sound card is bad?
