Looks like you need to buy a new soundcard. Creative Labs makes an excellent 7.1 digital card for PCI slot that is relatively cheap. Just make sure when you purchase the card, it is Vista Compatable.

Pci input device and mulitimedia audio controller please help


Hello michael_bilb

This is what comes up in device manager under "other devices" in windows xp.

The reason is that your computer uses creative sound blaster live 24bit sound card.

To get read of that you need to install the sound card driver. It can be downloaded from Dell support on their web site.

If you can not get it from dell try this link
http://support.creative.com/Products/product_list.aspx?catID=1&CatName=Sound+Blaster#

on the screen click on "live"
in the "archive products" column click on the last item "sound blaster lave value"
you should be able to download your driver from their.

Good luck

Dell Dimension 4600 creative sound blaster card


It sounds like you may have broken your sound card. I had the same problem when I tried to digitise my old 4-track recordings. 
I tried the broken card in another PC, found that it was not working, so I went out and bought a new sound card.

Sound Blaster Audigy Prob


Dear


This usually happens to a PC with an Audigy card and uses a VIA chipset. The problem seems to be worse with the use of VIA Althlon chipsets but I can not concretely confirm that. Usually this will surface during driver installation with a message saying that there is no Audigy card installed. The solution that I found to work is to first manually install the card through device manager. In Control Panel->Systems->device manager, do a driver update by specifying the directory where you have extracted the Audigy drivers. This driver update will end up with a partially working driver that says "Audigy Audio Processor (WDM)" or "EMU10k1 audio". Once this is performed reinstall the driver normally by running setup.exe. If you can get the driver to partially install then the second time around the system will be able to recognize the installed audigy card. 
In 2003, Creative finally releaased updated drivers for SB Live! and Audigy. The new drivers should solve the above problem for most people.
