    according to the creative website, yes it is 64 bit drivers

  • Billy Jan 23, 2009

    yes, the drivers are 64 bit

  • Billy Jan 23, 2009

    i do not have a second pci-e for audio, but i have taken it out, and booted without it, it not longer showed in device manager, i uninstalled all the drivers / software that came with out, shut down, put it back in, booted up, windows did not auto detect it, and it is still a yellow question mark in the device manager, reinstalled the drivers, no luck, and i have tried plugged in speaker's to every port, and that also doesn't work

  • Billy Jan 23, 2009

    it only fits into 1 slot, its a mini pci-e slot, should i try plugging it into another slot even though it doesn't fit?

  • Billy Jan 23, 2009

    i have tried the auto update, and it tells me that i have no hardware for it to update, here is a link of what i have, check it out while i check on the 2 things you posted.

  • Billy Jan 23, 2009

    the sound card came in the same box as the motherboard

  • Billy Jan 23, 2009

    the NVIDIA nForce MCP72/78 System Drivers drivers will not work, there is not windows xp 64 there, i had to get them from the nivida website to get everything else working

  • Billy Jan 23, 2009

    "creative software autoupdate was unable to detect any creative products attached to your computer." is the message i get from live update, and "No supported device found" is the message i get from the driver download off the MSI website for the audio drivers.

  • Billy Jan 23, 2009

    lol not that i know of, i put the AMD Phenom X4 9950 in there, and the ram i put in is the OCZ duel channel 4 1 gb x4 pc8500 ddr2 1066mhz, and video card geforce 9800gtx+, with the hard drive 300gb raptor from western digital, the 10k rpm one.

  • Billy Jan 23, 2009

    yup, have already tried that too, its 2am here for me too, im also going to bed, im looking forward to hearing if you come up with anything else, i am also going to contact MSI tomorrow and see what they have to say, ill keep you posted, and post it here incase anyone else comes across this problem.

    No ... if it says pci express then that's the slot you use.

    go into setup at start and look in advanced setup check auto detect DIMM/PCI clk ENABLED The go to features setup look for onboard PCI IDE
    BOTH make sure these two are configure right then you know they are on.

    check those two things... also look at the box again and make sure it says pci express on the box

    have you installed that in a white pci slot ?

  • Roberta Smith
    Roberta Smith May 11, 2010

    two things then... pull the card and put in another slot.... and confirm you are plugging your speaker in the correct hole.. if it's colour coded it's the light green one.

    abit of a conflict in information... it calls for a pci 2.1... (which very well could be a term for the express standard) or you need to confirm *********** board supports that type of pci slot


  • Roberta Smith
    Roberta Smith Jan 23, 2009

    go here... get the driver from msi

    Just on the outside chance it's some other issue... get all the drivers for that board there... should be the newest ones.... i have a few msi boards so you would also be able to use there auto update feature to tell you if the drivers you have are current... also you may have to add the driver "manually"


  • Roberta Smith
    Roberta Smith Jan 23, 2009

    just looking over that board... is there any cpu it doesn't support lol...

    bet you can hear the tires squeal when you boot up... 2am here and i'm off to bed soon but i'll think about this.... a few tips cause i suspect you know about as much as i do or more... unrar that driver file into a folder... go into device manager and select the sound card... right click then update driver but do NOT let windows search for it... when you get to have disk.... direct it to the driver folder that you unrared

    I'm willing to bet you'll have to wait till the release a bios update to fix the issue... bugga

I have a creative sound card and i want its sound driver pls tell me what to do vijay

Look at the model number on the Creative sound card. You want to match up the correct drivers.

Once you find it go to Creative Worldwide Support,

A) Click on the SoundBlaster icon.

B) Click on the soundcard icon that matches yours. I'm going to click on the X-Fi Xtreme Audio icon to use for an example.

Here on the next page we see we are presented with two driver choices.

1) Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio driver 1.04.0090


2) Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio pack 1.04.0079

The 1.04.0090 audio driver is for Vista, and Windows 7.
It also contains the Creative Audio console.
Click on Show Details to the right for more information.

The 1.04.0079 audio pack is for Windows XP, and Vista.
It also has the Creative Audio Console.
Click on Show Details to the right for more information.

When you have the applicable choice, click on the red Download.

On the next page read the Creative Software License Agreement, then click on Agree.

A small window will come up. Write down the file name.
For example I am looking at Opening XFXA_PCDRV_LB_1_04_0079

The file name is > XFXA_PCDRV_LB_1_04_0079.exe

This is the file name I will look for.

Click on Save File.

A small window will come up on the left.
Quickly look at the heading of this window.
This is where the file will download to.

Look for My Documents, (Documents for Vista), or Downloads, or Desktop, in the heading.

Close all windows, go back to the desktop screen. See the file name?

Click on Start > then click on My Documents. (WinXP)

Don't see the file name there?
Look for a folder named Downloads.
Double-click on the Downloads folder name look for the file name.

When you see the file name double-click on it. Follow the easy instructions of the Installation Wizard.
(Essentially just click on Next, Next, and Finish. Then restart your computer.

Cant get sound card working in Windows XP Pro 64 bit

Go to Add/Remove Programs and uninstall the software related to your soundcard.

Go to Device Manager and remove the sound card it is the device that has an exclamation point or question mark.

Turn off your PC and remove the Card. Then turn it back on again and enter the BIOS setup and disable the built in sound card of your motherboard then press F10 and save the changes.

Restart your computer and verify that windows is not going to scan for missing devices. Check the Device Manager again and look for any devices that has an exclamation point or question mark. If there is none. Turn off your computer put the sound card back in and turn it on again. Put in the CD Driver but exit on the autorun let windows detect the card automatically and wait for it to ask for the location of the drivers. Point or browse to the driver location and let the installation finish and click on ok. Your PC may ask for another restart do that turn on your speaker and listen for the boot up sound if your hear it then your card is now working.
