Question about Inland 58016 Wavetable PCI Sound Card

1 Answer

Still no sound

Hi, Still haven't gotten this to work. For starters, I wouldn't know winzip or the absence thereof if it hit me over the head. Second, when I double click the new icon on my desktop which appeared when I went to that url and downloaded the software, and which looks like a manila folder with a zipper, I just get a window (that looks like an Internet Explorer window) with 24 files in it. There is no install button. I placed those files in a new folder located within "My Documents" so I can find it. I went to "device manager". Within it were several "PCI communication device" entries and one "PCI card". I right clicked them all. I got no "uninstall" option, but did get "remove" and did that for each. I hope that wasn't a mistake. (There also was no "update driver" option as someone else recommended. Though there was "refresh". Perhaps I should have done that. I suspect the matter is moot though now as they're all gone.) I rebooted and got an "Add New Hardware Wizard" window. I could choose "Automatic search for a better driver" (that didn't work) or "Specify location of the driver". The latter gives me a new window, again with 2 options. One is "Search for best driver" which allowed me to "Browse" and choose the folder with the 24 files I put in "My Documents". (That didn't work either.) The other choice was "display a list of all the drivers in a specific location". This gave me a long list - didn't know what to choose. Two "other" type categories proved fruitless. Choosing "sound, video, and game controllers" made the computer ask me the manufacturer and model. Inland was not listed, so I chose generic. The response I got was "The driver you have chosen was not written specifically for the selected hardware and may not work properly." It wasn't recommended, but I went ahead anyway. I got a progress bar - seemed to do something, as to what I don't know - it went by pretty fast. Then I ended up with a message that "Windows was unable to locate the software for this device". And I remain without sound. I'm interested in further advice, but this isn't going very well. So I want to start looking for other solutions. In that vein I want to start by asking, Who are you guys anyway? Is this Inland technical support? Does the company still exist?

Re: still no sound

Ok, it sounds as if your trying to install zipped files; you can't Remove your sound card, you should also dissable the onboard sound on your motherboard in the bios; if you have'nt already. Go back to the folder you downloaded(which will be a zipped folder for faster downloading and security). Right click on the folder as shown below and unzip using XP's unzipper. When it is unzipped this is the folder you make Windows look to for the installation. put your sound card back in and re boot. If this does not work it is the wrong .dll or ini installation file.

Is it possible for the sound card to fall out?

It is possible, although unlikely if it was installed correctly. It would be much more likely in a desktop system, but I don't know what kind of computer you are using.
If you are using a desktop computer, opening the case to the system is usually simple and it wouldn't take more than a glance around the components to see if the card has fallen out.
A laptop would be a more difficult situation, but still do-able if you know what you are doing. I, myself, would not mess around with a laptop's interior, however.

EMU 1616M sound card

I know this is a longshot, so forgive me..
Hit F8 on booting up and go into the BIOS, and use the arrow keys to navigate to sound and check that the PCI (sound card) is checked and not the OS (onboard sound). Save to CMOS and Exit.
I know.. I know.. but sometimes it's as simple as that..
Let me know how you get on..

Sound of My PC doesn't work/silence

The easiest way, you can scan your computer to know which driver you is required. There is a free software that does that. It is found on the website Under the title Welcome to driverguide!, there is a small section 'Quick start'. On the second step 'Scan your system for updates', click on that link and then another screen comes up. Click on Click to start: the download starts. Once it is downloaded, you execute the file (drvscn.exe).

Acer 5050 (5056) not working with Indigo I/O

Hi Uzo, click on this Acer link to open.

Under MS Windows XP, click the dropdown menu & choose,
Audio Driver Realtek Ver.
A download window will open, click to Save. Creat a folder on you're desktop & name it sound driver. Save the download file into the folder.
If you prefer the MS Windows Vista, do the same as mentioned above.
The downloaded file will be compressed in a .zip format. Use WinZip to uncompress the files into the folder you created.
If you need the program WinZip you can download a free 45 day trial from this link.

It is suggest that you check Add/remove programs & unstall any previous sound drivers before installing Acer's driver software. If you sound still does not function, please run windows update service. Code 10 can mean many different things, including you're system may contain a virus.
Explanation of error codes generated by Device Manager in Microsoft Windows XP Professional.

Good luck!
Hope the Acer driver software gets you're sound to work.

Actually I already tried that

Try another way around,right click your sound card in device manager and click update driver; forcing it to look wherever you have the setup.exe stored on your pc, the file you are using is probably not a manual setup, but has the required .ini or .dll file required for your card.
