Ok now this might seem like a silly question  but have you checked the
speakers are on and the volume is up sufficiently to allow you to hear
sound from them? I assume you have the documentation for the sound card
in question, there should be a trouble shooting guide with it , if not
maybe a trip to the manufacturers web site might helpas the "not ready"
message seems rather strange to me as it looks like you are doing all
the right things.
