Move the sound card to another pci slot on your computer. Open up your pc and where the sound is move it one slot over. First, NO power on!!! Than move it. when you start your pc it will display a message (new hardware found) at that point you can reinstall the driver software for the sound card and the M controller will install as well.

IK Multimedia Production IK Multimedia Amplitube 2 Jimi Hendrix Edition Crossgrade/Upgrade (AT200UJHIN) won't play right on windows 7


Have you tried to use XP mode in Windows 7? In Windows 7 you can install XP mode and attempt to run the software from the virtualized environment. For the download for XP mode on Windows 7, go to this website: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx

Another thought that I have is that in Windows 7 - have you searched for an updated signed driver for your sound card? Depending on the model of computer you own - you can usually find the signed drivers at the manufacturers support website. Sometimes, changing the driver you are using for your sound card can also effect how your sound interfaces with different programs.

I hope this bit of information helps!

> other device - multimedia audio controller

This means that Windows has not found/loaded the device-drivers for your sound-card.

> other device video controller(VGA compatible)

This means that Windows has not found/loaded the device-drivers for your video-card.

In both cases, access: http://WindowsUpdate.Microsoft.com
and do a "custom" search for updated device-drivers.
When the search completes, click the "Optional Hardware" updates, to see if Windows Update is offering device-drivers for your hardware.

Or, access the web-site for the manufacturer of your motherboard,
and do a search, based on the model-number of the motherboard,
and based on the Operating System (XP? Vista? 7?) that you have installed,
to see if that web-site is offering device-drivers for your environment.

Hi i've just upgraded my Compaq nx6110 to Windows 7 from Windows XP and my audio isn't working. I've tried installing all the codecs and drivers i could find for my multimedia audio controller...


Depends on the usage you give it. If you don't use very heavy and CPU dependent programs and don't want to spend your money you should downgrade back to XP.
But if you feel like you need more power for the software you use and can spare a few bucks you should definitely invest in a new PC. That PC is quite old and will start limiting you a lot if you need it on a regular basis.

Ok, instead of having all the hassle, my best advise for you is this, have your hard drive reformat, install it first with windows xp SP1 then upgrade it to windows xp SP2, in this way all the drivers missing and not supported will be rsetored, windows xp supported almost all drivers

Problem with Windows XP recognizing Creative Sound Card


It sounds like a software problem. Though you did the right thing by entering the bios & disabling the onboard sound. That should have been enough. Did you uninstall the old intergrated sound drivers before adding the 24bit card? Just about all the drivers & upgrades for your 4600 through Dell is Creative software & thats why your having a tough time. I would put everything back to how it was. Re-enable the intergrated sound & reboot! Run system restore & check that every thing is running right!! Look at this dell web site for the sound drivers you have at this link:
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&ServiceTag=&SystemID=DIM_P4_4600&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=
If you must, install a upgrade for your intergrated sound. Just so you can uninstall it after a reboot. Re disable the sound in the bios. Do not install your new card yet. While back in windows device manager you should be missing a PCI device. Shut down install the new sound card. Hopefully windows will want the drivers & all runs fine. If still no it could be a bad card (i know what your thinking but it's possible). The only thing left is the regestry is using the wrong PCI device.
