PCI sound card not working

Hi, has anyone else had a problems installing a PCI soundcard on K7S41GX? I have Creative Audigy SE and I have tried everything and still got no sound.

I have tried to remove on board audio drivers, disable on board audio from windows and enable it, put it to auto -mode or disable it from BIOS. I even updated the BIOS.

When I install Audigy drivers, everything, I mean EVERYTHING looks fine! All Creative tests are passing and only problems are NO SOUND and when I play a sound file, it stops at 20-30 sec. Or not.


And I mean it! There is absolutely no visible errors on windows! I have checked everything.

I have tried with SB Audigy SE and SB AudioPCI 128. Excactly sam thing happens with the older card.

On another pc, Audigy and AudioPCI 128 worked with no problems.

You may have to disable the build in soundcard on the mainboard, in the device manager when you install the driver for the creative sound card. Here could be a conflict between these to this is maybe why you have the code 12.

This is your board:
Unfortunately Sound Max is no longer available and you may be able to find the driver at the Asus site I gave you. It would only work for the version of Windows your system came with and, I can't guarantee that. Your easiest and best option at this point, would be to upgrade to a PCI or USB sound card. You can use something like this:
Which is a USB card or, something like this:
There are others available:
Any of these sould work for you and, in the long run, you will be happier with an added card.
Good luck,

Try to reattach your sound card. It will solve the problem. If it doesn't work you can format your computer or clean the viruses on your computer. If problem still occurs change the sound card.

After installing pci soundcard you really should disable the onboard sound through bios as the PC may just have become confused as to which sound its trying to use. Also in control panel under sound devices make sure your soundcard is listed and the mute box is not checked.

Sure,install the creative sound blaster audigy 4 or whatever you got,plug in your speakers,& turn it on. Follow the instructions to install the drivers from the cd for the card.The onboard audio will be by-passed automatically when you install the card. If you need more help,write back.

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)"

PCI card not been detected via Windows.

the sound card is installed into the ISA slot not the PCI slot.
clear the cmos for a minute, set it normal again.
install the sound card to the ISA slot carefully - i mean a working sound card and couple the system unit and boot, surely you will have your sound card working.

I agree with peepnklown, there does not appear to be any audio on this motherboard. it is not in the specs and the photos of the board do not show an audio connector block on either the 6bx7 or the 6bx7+

you can easily add sound to this board by using a PCI sound card, something like this

or maybe something more elaborate if you have expert sound requirements like DTS or Surround sound.
