Question about Compaq Creative Sound Blaster PCI 128 Sound Card

1 Answer

WAVE files play without sound!

I don't know if that's a problem caused by my Sound card (wich is ok i think) or any options or any .dll file.

Whenever i try to play a WAVE file exported from Guitar Pro 5 (at 16bit, 44000 Khz) and then try out in many Media Players, sound doesn't come out my nice speakers.

It's really frustrating.

Any help appreciated.

    regular mp3's work fine? a way to see if your sound card supports wave output can be if you have winamp media player installed open it and go to settings/output and set it to wave and see if it will play any mp3's

It crashes


try the following
Please start with these steps when you are ready to troubleshoot the cause of the crashes you are experiencing.
  1. Check the Minimum System Requirements If you have never played the game before on your system, it is crucial to double-check the system requirements to determine if your system can run the game. The minimum system requirements for each game can be found on the game's page in the Steam Storefront.
    Check the DirectX and Pixel Shader Requirements for Games on Steam topic to make sure that your system meets the minimum requirements for the game you are attempting to play. Many newer games such as Team Fortress 2 and Portal require greater system resources than Half-Life 2.
  2. Verify Your Game Cache Files Please see the Verifying GCF Cache Files topic for instructions to ensure game cache file corruption is not the source of the crash.
  3. Rule out Background Applications and Anti-Virus/Security Software Check the Programs Which Interfere with Steam, and Spyware, Adware, and Viruses Interfering with Steam topics to ensure the crash which you have encountered is not related to malicious software or a specific program which is known to cause issues with Steam.
    Certain Anti-Virus applications such as AVG 7.5, Nod32 and Norton have been confirmed to cause instability with Steam and Source Engine games. This software must be fully uninstalled from your system until the Anti-Virus software developers can resolve these issues. If you are not comfortable with using alternative Anti-Virus protection, then we recommend contacting your Anti-Virus developer for more information.
  4. Do Not Use Two Sound Devices Simultaneously If you have installed a PCI or USB sound card on your system (such as a Creative X-fi or Audigy sound card), please ensure that your motherboard's onboard sound card is disabled in the system BIOS. Having both installed may result in system instability - even if the secondary device is disabled in the Windows device manager. Please consult your motherboard's manual for instructions on editing BIOS settings.
  5. Routers and Firewalls Can Also Cause Crashes Check the Router and Router Firmware Issues topic to make sure that your router is properly configured and that you are running the best possible firmware version available. If your router is not configured correctly, it can cause crashes both in Steam and in games.
    Firewalls can also lead to crashes depending on the way they are configured. Please follow the Using a Firewall with Steam topic to make sure your Firewall is properly configured.
  6. Force the Game Settings Back to the "Factory Defaults" Those custom autoexec.cfg files and graphics tweak guides you followed promised all kinds of improvements, but if all you ended up with are crashes then it is time to restore the original game settings for stability. In order to do this, make sure you are not running any custom autoexec.cfg files when the game starts up and use the -autoconfig launch option. To set this option, follow these steps:
    • Right-click on the game you're attempting to play
    • Select "Properties"
    • Click "Set Launch Options", found under the "General" tab
    • Type in: -autoconfig
    • Click "Ok"
    • Launch the game
  7. Mss32.dll (Miles Sound System) Other PC games may install the Mss32.dll file in your C:\Windows\System32 directory. This can lead to the game crashing because the Mss32.dll file in your Windows folder is conflicting with the file located in the game's directory. Please see the The MSS DLL is incorrectly installed in the Windows System directory topic for instructions on how to remove the file from your System32 directory.

Sytem files streamci files


Hi Coolkagz,

streamci is a .dll file. You can directly download the dll file from the following website.

http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?streamci

There are two options available on the website, 1. premium and the 2. is free. The premium is a paid one so avoid it. :)

Many Dell PCs have an internal speaker that will allow sounds and even music to play - it is just not as good as the external types that offer sub woofers and stereo sound. As long as you're hearing the familiar Windows Sounds and not simple beeps - your sound card drivers are probably ok.

This makes me think that you've either inserted the speaker plug into the wrong jack on the PC or have an issue with the speakers themselves. Generally, these jacks are color coded. If yours are, make sure that speakers are connected to the GREEN jack. If not color coded there should be an indication of an arrow pointing OUT or a speaker icon near the speaker jack. If still no luck, it is possible that the cord between the plug and the speakers has gotten pinched or broken. Try plugging a pair oh head phones into the jack - or plug the speakers into another device with a speaker jack. I'm pretty sure you'll get your answer after doing that. Some final thoughts: Maybe your speakers need power? Are they plugged in? Is the outlet powered? Is there a power indicator? Is the volume knob turned to minimum?

If you still have problems - provide the model number of your Dell PC and we can dig some more - but I think you'll find the problem if you follow the steps above.

I hope this was Very Helpful - and good luck!

Re: Play button on DSS AS-2300 Transcription player


several solutions you can try.. first of all, convert it to wave and try to play it (file. convert to wave)

if it is for all dss files, then the program may have to dll files that updated and will not work now

depending on operating system... windows xp media edition maybe the cause would be my first guess and there would be no fix for it...
2nd guess... service pack 3.... try to uninstall the program and reinstall it... and if you have service pack 3... go thru control panel and uninstall service pack 3 if you have it

Hi, Alex,

I think you may have deleted your audio file driver on your laptop the only way to get your sound back is to re-install your audio driver for your laptop as the sound card on your laptop is ok you can find sound card drivers on the internet if you don`t have the drivers for your sound card

I don't think it's a zipping problem


Create a folder and put the zipped file in thre and extract to same folder. Then turn off computer, install the peripheral, and reboot. When computer detects presence of new hardware it will ask for driver. Then direct the computer to the folder where you have all of the extracted files and the OS will find the necessary driver and take care of business for you.
