I really don't know exactly where to post this, but gotta start somewhere, i guess.

I upgraded my gpu to a R9 390 and it was getting too hot. My sound card was close in proximity to my gpu fans so I moved it...to a pciex8 slot (it's a pciex1 card) which was further away from the fans. The card works fine with no issue, BUT! the SounBlaster Z- Series control Panel isn't working now.
When I try to start it it tells me "The current selected audio device is disabled, not present,not supported by the application, or has unplugged jacks."

Like I said the card works fine. I don't use any other audio ports and, yes my mic and headphone jacks are plugged in.

Thanks,
Harrison

I tried a repair that required a reboot and got nothing. I'll perform a full un/re-install soon and get back to you.

I un/re-installed the SB ZX software and all is well so far. I don't have time to extensively test itt all right now. But I'll post when I do. Thanks.
