Question about Creative Labs Audigy Gamer Sound Card

2 Answers

No Windows Sounds or windows sound functions but All media players work

I have lost my Windows Sounds no startup, no program sounds, no game sounds, etc. Control Panel shows sound card but cannot get any sounds to preview. Yet Media Player works, as does Winamp, and many other sound based devices. I have no sound from Internet sites. Creative tests work and all sound OK but no sound in Windows

Hi i have a western digital home edition 2 tb hard drive that now when i play an avi movie file i get sound and no picture or picture and no sound also these files play fine on windows media player so now...


> these files play fine on Windows Media Player

Then, continue to use Windows Media Player.

Or, tell us what alternative program that you use that gives "sound-and-no-picture" or "picture-and-no-sound".
What version of that program?
Windows XP? Vista? 7?
Any more "possibly-relevant" details ?

I've got crative inspire t7900 not workin


You can hear music and sound when you test your audio and also the Windows startup and shutdown even sounds. But you can't hear any music when you play it in Windows Media Player or the videos on youtube because Windows Media Player needs some codecs installed and you don't have those installed.

You can download and install this Media Player codec pack from Microsoft.

Hope that helps,

It sounds like your sound card is disabled. Go to Control Panel > System > Device Manager > click on Sound,video and game controllers.. Look to see if your sound card shows up. If it's there, double click on it to see if it says it's working properly or disabled.

If it says it's okay, you may want to uninstall it, and reinstall it. Go to your PC mfg website and look for an updated driver.

Sound device problem


if you go to the start menu and right click my computer on the list at the bottom it says properties click thAt a window will open called system properties on the tab titled hardware at the top click that a window for the hardware will open and you are looking for device manager in the device manager you can update and mess with whatever you have installed on your computer. now look for sound video and game controllers on the left is a plus arrow click the + symbol and it will expand your devices look for anything titled with the words (audio driver) this should give you make and model information of your sound card and drivers from here you can use windows (by double clicking your selection) to troubleshoot and update that driver or what i would reccomend is write that information down and then google search the description for your sound card and driver i think a generic driver is called legacy audio driver or something like that. anyways hope this fix ya
best regards,

Sound


Since your sound is obviously working, the problem is with your sound schemes in Windows. Click on Control Panel and go to Sounds and Audio Devices. Click on the "Sounds" tab and at the bottom, you can change the default sound(s) you want to play for each Windows function. Scroll down to "Windows Logon" and click "Browse" to choose the sound you want to play at startup.

Problem solved :) Remember to rate

If you are able to hear sound while starting PC issue is not with sound card. that is installed and working properly. If you are clicking on any file that is not playing then window media player is not supporting that file. If you are directly opening window media player from start>>Program>>access>>>>window player and it is giving error. It mean that your player is corrupted. You can upgrade that with higher version of player by going this link. www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/9series/player.aspx
