I just downloaded the Ableton live 8 preview and no sound is coming out. Can someone help with this?


You must go to the Control Panel - Audio and change the setting to use the new sound card. There is a pull down list for you to select the sound system. Test it with the sounds box at the bottom of the audio window. Make sure the software for the new card is installed. To properly install new hardware you must reboot the computer. Then the Windows main screen will say "New Hardware Found" in the lower right screen. When finished it will tell you the the Installation is Complete or Ready to Use.

If the audio does not come on go to Control Panel / System / Hardware and see if there is a yellow astrek next to the Audio. If so it is not working properly. Click on the Audio to bring up the item. The right click on the sound card title and select "Update Driver". Your computer will search for the new software already installed which is compatible with the sound card and install it. If the astrek goes away your audio should work fine.

If the sound card is not on the audio list, check to make sure that it is properly installed on the motherboard, all the way in with no metal contacts showing above the card holder. Also look for any wires which may have been caught in the slot when you put it in. And finally make sure your audio cable is plugged into the new sound card (and not still in the old location).

Just bought new computer with Windows 7 Professional, put in my Soundblaster Audigy 2 sound card, disabled the Realtec card that came with the system, but the computer still doesn't acknowledge that new...


Disable the realtek from bios, then uninstall its drivers.
Reboot
If Soundblaster is not auto detected go to Device Manager and click on menu "Search for new hardware". After your card is detected, install specific drivers
Reboot
and that should do the trick.

It sounds like what you've done was reformat your system, rather than reboot. Is that right?
What you are actually missing is not the cards but the drivers to make them operable. I'm not real familiar with 2000, but here's an excellent tutorial for updating drivers that will help guide you through the process. Here's a link to the HP page that has all the original drivers for your windows 2000 system, and here's another link to the xp drivers. You should probably choose one OS or the other, rather than trying to install 2 of them. Your system will run better for it...You can download them from antother internet connected computer and burn the download to a cd if you have'nt internet access from your system at the moment.
Here are a couple of links that may be helpful from your hp support sites, here , here, here, and here.
You might save yourself a lot of time updating windows if you consult articles here nad here.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Check for updated drivers and install if available. If that does not resolve the issue completely remove the card and any software and drivers and do a clean install with the new drivers

UA101 and Blue Screen of Death


try this to make sure that the driver was installed correctly.:

Note: Do not use the “Add New Hardware” Wizard in the control panel. Follow the steps below to install your driver correctly.

1. Plug in the USB cable and power on the device – the New Hardware Wizard will start up (wait for it to start).

2. If Windows asks to connect to Windows Update, click on “No, not this time” and click on “Next.”

3. Select “Install from a list or specified location” and click “Next.”

4. Select “Include this location in the search” and Browse to the folder containing your driver (either on your CD or the folder you downloaded). Click “Next.”

5. Click “Continue Anyway” when the Windows Logo testing screen appears.

6. Click “Finish” when the Completing the Found New Hardware Wizard screen appears.

At this point, you may need to reboot your computer. After restarting, you should check to make sure the driver was successfully installed. Go to Control Panel / Sounds and Audio Devices and make sure your device is listed under “Sound Playback” and “Sound Recording” for audio devices and “”MIDI Music Playback” for MIDI devices. You should also check in the Device Manager to make sure your MIDI or Audio device is listed under “Sound, video and game controllers” with no problems (such as the yellow exclamation point).

If everything is successful to this point, Windows has installed the device correctly and is making it available to any software you need to run. If you can not see your device in your software, you should first try re-profiling the device (different software programs do this differently). If this does not work, you may need to uninstall and reinstall the software. If you still do not see your device, you may need to contact your software vendor for more help.

- Mac OS X -
1. Make sure the Roland/Edirol device and any non-essential USB devices are disconnected.

2. Run the *.pkg installer from the CD-ROM or downloaded driver and follow the onscreen installation instructions. When finished, reboot fully.

3. Plug in the Roland/Edirol device. Ports should now be available in software (you can verify driver availability in Applications > Utilities > Audio/MIDI Setup > MIDI Devices).

- Mac OS 9.X -
Users must first decide if they want to run OMS or FreeMIDI, which can be downloaded from the World Wide Web. OMS is recommended. See the OMS or FreeMIDI documentation for installation and activation details.

Double-click the Edirol installer and follow the onscreen installation instructions.

Note: If you continue to have problems, you may wish to consider upgrading to OS X, as its Core Audio and Core MIDI features make this operating system an excellent base for music applications.


ALSO:

Product: UA-25 UA-101 FA-66 FA-101 UA-4FX UA-1EX

Pop/click/dropout is often a buffer size problem. Be sure to check your Buffer Size setting. You'll find it in the Edirol Icon in System Preferences or in the Control Panel of a Windows machine. Increase your buffer size until the problem goes away.

There are also several settings you will want to make in order for audio applications on a Windows XP computer run optimally.

One of the more detailed websites to walk through these settings is MusicXP.net.

Hey Sue, first thing you need to do is press delete when you first switch the pc on to get into the bios, and under usually intergrated deviced, disable the old onboard sound, and save the settings, load windows normally go into control panel, system, device manager, double click on any sound related devices that has a yellow tag next to it, and click on update drivers, make sure you have the cd in the drive, and let it search the cd for the drivers, do it for each device with yellow tag and then it should work. All the best John
