Question about Creative Labs 70SB038000000 SB0380 Audigy 4 Pro PCI Internal Drive + Enternal I/O Hub Retail Sound Card

1 Answer

Audigy 4 Pro no longer works with latest driver set from Creative

The PCB is a 0380 and it worked fine for two years using the drivers that came with it. I decided to update the drivers...oooops. The system is running XP Pro SP2 w/all updates (except SP3). Board is ASUS P5W-DH Deluxe, 4GB of Corsair Dominator RAM (throttled to 3.2GB and running @ 800mhz), CPU is Q6700 running @ 300mhz (3Ghz), Video is stock ATI Radeon X1900XTX. All was fine until I updated the sound drivers, then the sound would work, but would fail when returning from Standby. So, I decided to rollback the driver... Very muted sound, barely audible if you put your ear against the speaker. All volume controls were at maximum. I reinstalled the latest drivers from Creative and zero sound. All is junk now. No sound, no Audigy 4 in Add or Remove Programs (but it is in device manager and appears OK), only the Creative Sound Console is there to add/remove. I even switched PCI slots and uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers...zilch.

Hi
it will be a little bit long prosses , but lets start after you finished , let me know, if problem is solved or exist,
as you know the best soloution is to have cd that it came with your pc or your sound card.
but i assume you don't have it,
updating the driver ,doesn't mean it always make is better(they are spose to be ) so you had to roll back as soon as you saw the problem. is ok
1- go to windows update ,chose custom , look at left panel to see if windows offer hardware update , is so(your soundcard might be one of them) download them and restar your pc.
if it did not solve ,
first make restoration point on your system restoration(please don't forget)
uninstal driver make sure ther is nothing left from your sound card.
turnoff your pc , disconect the power and open your pc , take the soundcard out , turn on your pc . and turn it off now instal your sound card ,back , start pc , windows should pickup your sound card ,
please let me know if these steps did help ,if not post what was theresult for more assistanse
thanks ,Marco

    When you upgrade to Vista 64 bit, you also need to update and upgrade all drivers to the 64 bit version. Please update the drivers for your Audigy 4 sound devices and your remote should be back in action.
