a driver must come along with your sound card..shutdown PC..open casing and insert sound card in appropriate slot..turn PC on...right click My Computer..properties...hardware then device manager..on device manager click action then scan for hardware changes..the new found hardware wizard should pop up upon detecting the newly installed sound card..insert installer CD and follow instructions on the wizard... when finished restart and enjoy..
Hi, Reinstall the newest Realtek drivers. These are the sound drivers for the sound card and you shouldn't have uninstalled them.
Alternatively, on rebooting the computer, you can press F8 and enter the BIOS and use the arrow buttons to navigate to the sound settings for the motherboard and change the motherboard sound output from PCI (sound card) to OS (onboard sound). This will mean you have to plug your speakers into the other set of audio holes inthe back of the computer and the sound will come straight from the motherboard. Most people prefer to use the sound card though, as it is far superior, especially when using the latest Realtek or Creative drivers installed. (don't you use a creative driver... you have a RealTek card!) So reinstall the Realtek Hd Audio driver and don't mess with it anymore :)
PS Did you try playing a song and trying the different audio ports on your computer? Or checking the Volume Control to check that nothing is muted or turned down?
I presume you are going in through the mic socket on the audigy?
If so the most likely cause is a mismatch between the mic and the mic amplifier on the card, they are designed for cheapo condenser mikes that have a fairly high output.
Also make sure you disable any inputs that ar'nt in use to minimize noise.
If you have the Mike plugged into the line in you have it in the wrong socket.
The best way to get a good result is use an external mic amp or mixer and go in through the line in. Again make sure you disable any inputs your not using (in the computer mixer) and turn down any sliders on the external mixer that ar'nt in use to minimize noise.
If you'r still having problems get back to me with a more detailed description of your setup, whats plugged into where etc...
Hi Nickie69, You can try updating your Audio driver by going to your PC's manufacturer support site and downloading the latest drivers for your model (If you posted which PC you had, I would have provided a link to the driver page for your model) and updating them. Or, if your integrated (?) audio is toast, then you can buy an inexpensive or very trick PCI sound card and install it to replace the integrated audio in your PC. Just a couple of thoughts, as I didn't have much information to work with. More details will get you better solutions, as always. Good Luck.
