Question about Mad Dog Multimedia Predator 5.1 DSP 6 Channel Sound Sound Card
I am trying to upgrade my computer sound card but can't get any sound out of the new card I've installed. I followed manufacturer's instructions to the T (i.e., I removed the new sound card, started in safe mode, removed all things listed in the "Sound" section of the Device Manager, shut down, replaced the sound card, rebooted. This supposedly ensured that the card was installed correctly, but still, no sound. I'm running Windows 2000. It seems that when I try to install the sound card drivers, I get the message that the computer is waiting until the audio drivers are ready ... but they never are ... it just sits there. I've waited at least 15 minutes each time and it's never ready. Is there anything I can do to fix this problem? I'm pretty fed up at this point. By the way, I think the old sound card is integrated with the motherboard, as it was not a separate thing I could remove when I put in my new card. Hope this info helps you to help me.
Hey Sue, first thing you need to do is press delete when you first switch the pc on to get into the bios, and under usually intergrated deviced, disable the old onboard sound, and save the settings, load windows normally go into control panel, system, device manager, double click on any sound related devices that has a yellow tag next to it, and click on update drivers, make sure you have the cd in the drive, and let it search the cd for the drivers, do it for each device with yellow tag and then it should work. All the best John
