First check that you are having no problems with your soundcard, go to control panel>system>hardware>device manager and see if there is a yellow exclamtion mark next to the soundcard.. If there is then try updating the drivers for it, or uninstalling it by right clicking it and choose uninstall then reboot the computer, the soundcard will be picked up as new hardware and should be installed again. Before you do this though you need to be sure that you have a pci soundcard actually installed and not an onboard chipset soundcard. If you have an onboard soundcard then it may not be good enough for games to be played. A lot of games require a minimum type of soundcard. Check to see what you have. Go to control panel as explained and write down the model number of your soundcard. Then check the minimum requirements for the game you are trying to play.

What is causing igi starting error?


There are so many reasons why the fatal exception error has occurred. First, your video card maybe has below specs and need to upgrade. Second, maybe you didn't install a direct x in your computer that's why games didn't run successfully. Last, some files are corrupt so the game will not run properly. Solutions:
First, upgrade your video card to a higher spec.
Second, try to install a direct x in your computer. This is the link to download DirectX
Third, try to uninstall the game and reinstall it again.

I can't hear sound& even vedios sound from pc.


what is the error? wrong codec or no audio device installed/detected?
in the case of the first problem, try downloading something like k-lite codec pack. otherwise you have the wrong audio drivers installed. for that you need your motherboard number, google for it for the right drivers, or alternatively download everest, find your audio model number, and download drivers for the mdel via google.

Sound blaster pci 128 Model CT4700


Yes, you can. This sound card is great, but this card WON'T work at all with any DOS games. And the 'legacy emulator' which is supposed to make it work with DOS applics doesn't work, even though it installs properly with no conflicts. But for everything else, like Windows games (e.g. Doom II for Win 95, Croc, Half-Life, etc), Windows apps, MP3s, CDs, MIDI, etc, this card is great. There is no problem, and MIDI music sound so realistic and good, especially when compared to some 16-bit sound cards.

I tried to install a fisher price program for my kids, it says Fatal error no sound card detected and game cannot be used without sound card, I am sure I must have a sound card, I can hear CDs from my PC,...


How old is your computer?

It may be that the on board sound your computer has does not meet the minimum requirements of the Fisher Price program.

The program should list on the back or side the minimum requirements. If your computer doesn't meet the sound guidelines, it more than likely will just not play.

If not, sound cards can be purchased for relatively little money and are easy to install.

Good luck and happy holidays!

Satellite pro 4600 windows 98 fatal error


What OS are you running on the system? Did you recently install any hardware? If there is a recent hardware install, remove it and try powering on the system on.

If this fails, then you'll need the restore CDs/DVDs from the manufacturer. This will bring the laptop to it's factory default installation. Before doing so, I recommend purchasing a hard-drive enclosure for a laptop hard-drive and backup all important data.


Hope this helps :)
