Bios not detecting my creative audigy card

The computer isnt recognising the sound card in the pci slot, i've tried it in the other two slots, still not registering, even when i use the original sound card disk, it says no hardware installed ... im pretty sure the pci slots are working fine, due to a siw check, they seem to be detected, so i dont think its the motherboard ...any suggestions?

SOURCE: no midi out device is detected

If you dont have a joystick port on the card, then you dont have a midi out. make sure your "out" or"playback" is patched to your card's synthesis engine, wavetable or GM/GS midi playback, and not to a "midi out" which really means a physical midi port.

SOURCE: The Creative Sound Blaster Live 5.1 Card is not working Or detecting in windows vista

Creative doesn't have Vista drivers for that video card so unless you use some hacked drivers it probably wont work.

SOURCE: Creative sound card! no sound!

Check whether you plugged in the speaker wire into the correct jack at the back of the computer (it should go into the green colored jack on the sound card).

Did you try playing a sound file? Does media player show the file as playing, but you can't hear anything? Or do you get any error? if there's any error, please mention the error.

If the sound plays but you can't hear anything, again, check the speakers are connected to the correct sound jack. Next, try connecting a pair of headphones or earphones (lower the volume before playing any sound  or music file).

If you still can't hear anything, click Start and type the command "dxdiag" in the Run box and then press the Enter key. In the dxdiag window, click the Sound tab. Check the Notes box, if it gives any error info. If your card is working, it should say 'No problems found." You can also test the sound using the "Test Directsound" button.

If you still can't hear any sound, you should check and reinstall your sound card driver manually after removing it first.

There may be other problems. For more information, check this nice blog post about sound problems.

Hope that helps.
Regards,
Raspal

SOURCE: i have brought a creative


there might be dust in the card slot remove the card the clean and replace it

also you might check
the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good
try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit dust causes static to build up in a computer
you might have to get a portable usb sound card if you mean dont have a sound card installed

hope this helps

Re-seat the card, or use Troubleshooting mode / compatibility mode by right clicking on setup. You may even have to roll back the OS if you changed it, or get an new compatible card.

GT 240 not detected


It sound like you may have a dodgy motherboard, if you have tried 2 card in the pci-e slot and neither work it's quite possible, If you can try the cards in another machine to eliminate the cards as the fault. the other thing to also test is the PSU but if the system otherwise seems stable then it's not likely this is the issue.

I have a sound blaster audigy 24 bit 7.1 sound card . it worked fine on windows xp but when i inserted the card in the slot for my new computer on windows 7 it says that no card was found :/ when i install...


Move the card to a different pci slot on the motherboard. It may have a conflict with another device. Make sure there is no power to the pc when you do this. If you still have the problem after trying all the slots then i suggest you empty all of them and just try the audio card on its own. If it works then fit the card/s you removed into other slots. good luck.

I have no sound on my computer.... i have a creative s8220 sound card.... i downloaded the sblive universal driver and it said no sound card detected.... in my sounds profiles it says no playback devices...


Firstly, try the card in another PCI slot, it may be that the slot is defective
Then if no luck, try another sound card in the slot, if that is recognised, then the problem is with the creative sound card.

Creative Sound Blaster Audigy PCI not regognized, No IRQ = NA


From the creative site

"Try the card in different slots
  • if you have an AGP card in the PC, try the PCI card in a non adjacent slot
  • assign as many IRQs as possible to PCI/PnP devices in the BIOS (consult your motherboard manual or contact your motherboard manufacturer/PC vendor for instructions)"

My audio device has a problem


I completed an install of a Creative SB Live! 5.1 on Windows XP pro 32 bit, SP3, with a P4 Intel 850 board. First I updated the bios. Then I had to bypass the windows auto driver install, because this always failed in the past. I disabled plug & play in the Services console (Control Panel/Admin Tools/Services) and shutdown. Then I inserted the card into a different PCI slot (note: my previous issues with audio cards leads me to suspect that certain PCI slots may be assigned automatically to specific IRQs and resources. I think it may be possible that the card may only work in one or 2 of the PCI slots on the system, -but I'm not sure of this). Anyway, I rebooted the system and installed the Creative SB Live drivers from the cd that came with the product. I installed drivers only and rebooted. There was no sound. I enabled Plug& Play in the Services console and started the service. Windows detected a game port and a PCI slot and automatically installed it then prompted me to restart. I was a little wary of the automatic install, but when I restarted the system my card was working and I had sound! Also, I previously enabled audio in the bios, it was originally disabled when I had problems. Although there is no built in audio ports on the system board I think there is an audio processing device resident on the motherboard. Audio cards can be tricky, but when you make all the right moves, they should install and work properly. The trick with the Creative card, I think, is that the Windows plug & play drivers don't work 100% with all systems and you need to find a way to get the proprietary drivers installed first.

Pci slots not working


This sounds like it may be a physical motherboard issue. But before replacing the board I would download a bios update as well as a chipset update. install one then reboot and install the other. The memory issue could be because of the amount of video Ram your computer is using. I would suggest going into the BIOS which is a part of your computer that shows how much memory its using. You usually press either f2 or the delete button when the computer first comes on to get there. You have to press it repeatedly or it just goes past it and loads Windows. There should be a setting for video memory that says Video, or aperture or something similar. I would have to know the motherboard and computer model and manufacturer to know for sure. You should be able to change the amount of memory used which would not consume to much memory. As for the sound card and the PCI slot if the upgrade didn't work I would try another card in that slow to see if it's the slot or the card. If it's the slot you would have to replace the motherboard to fix it.

Shutdown the computer and remove the power cord from the power supply.
Remove the card and check it for any physical damage. Something may have shorted out when you "jammed the jack" into it.

If there is nothing obviously wrong with the card, then reinsert it back into the slot fully, put the holding screw back in place and boot the computer back up.

It should find the drivers automatically (since it was previously installed)

If it dosn't, then shutdown again, move the card to another spare PCI slot and tray again.
Failing that, goto Creatives website. There is an option in the support section to allow Creatives webpage to scan your computer for drivers that you need automatically.

Hope that helps.
