Shutdown the computer and remove the power cord from the power supply.
Remove the card and check it for any physical damage. Something may have shorted out when you "jammed the jack" into it.

If there is nothing obviously wrong with the card, then reinsert it back into the slot fully, put the holding screw back in place and boot the computer back up.

It should find the drivers automatically (since it was previously installed)

If it dosn't, then shutdown again, move the card to another spare PCI slot and tray again.
Failing that, goto Creatives website. There is an option in the support section to allow Creatives webpage to scan your computer for drivers that you need automatically.

Hope that helps.

Whirlpool cabrio started making a loud noise when spinning. I've replaced the suspension springs before. Is that all I need to order? It's been a while.


Sounds like the bearings are toast. These machines have a poor seal in the tub which allows water to penetrate the bearings, drying/rusting them out. Go on "youtube" and search your problem. I use a 2"X4" and a jack on the center shaft to lift the drum out. Bearing tool and shaft/bearing, seal kit is approx. $150. Should take you approx. 4 hrs. if you're handy.

I do not have the software on my computer to install the speakers. where do i find it online?


No software is required for (any) speakers!
Just connect the speakers to the outlet and to the GREEN jack on the sound card...
If no sound is heard, make sure the sound card driver is properly installed and the sound is not muted.

Pelu.

I have my computer monitior hooked up to my polaroid flat screen tv. Worked fine for a while, then got a blue screen that says "not support". It has also been making a loud screech and a crackaling noise....


The 'NOT SUPPORT' message is due to the video signal resolution form your PC is too high for the TV to display, you need to set your PC video resolution to the native resolution of this TV.
Loud screeching sound may be causing by failing amplifiers if it comes through the speaker or may be from the power supply module due to bad/dying DC filter caps.

If you are going to DIY and have proper tools, electronics knowledge, and know safety precaution then please read on:

Creative sound card! no sound!


Check whether you plugged in the speaker wire into the correct jack at the back of the computer (it should go into the green colored jack on the sound card).

Did you try playing a sound file? Does media player show the file as playing, but you can't hear anything? Or do you get any error? if there's any error, please mention the error.

If the sound plays but you can't hear anything, again, check the speakers are connected to the correct sound jack. Next, try connecting a pair of headphones or earphones (lower the volume before playing any sound  or music file).

If you still can't hear anything, click Start and type the command "dxdiag" in the Run box and then press the Enter key. In the dxdiag window, click the Sound tab. Check the Notes box, if it gives any error info. If your card is working, it should say 'No problems found." You can also test the sound using the "Test Directsound" button.

If you still can't hear any sound, you should check and reinstall your sound card driver manually after removing it first.

There may be other problems. For more information, check this nice blog post about sound problems.

Hope that helps.

Raspal

What happens when it says "No audio output device installed." I have no sound. Please respond


Hello! kindly follow this steps below:
Please find your motherboard or sound card driver then insert it in your disk in the CD/DVD ROM if it is in a disk then run the setup.exe of that driver software then follow certain steps given by the computer installation wizard. Then after you finished the installation restart your computer then if the sound is restored then you have a successful sound card installation. You can do this steps again if you encounter same problem next time. The reason why this you receive this error message cause your sound driver has been corrupt and need to reinstall due to some hardware failure and software failure especially if their are virus and worms enter in your system.

Also try to update and install anti virus and update it in order to proctect and level up your security against virus, worms and hackers.

If you need more assitance please reply to this post.

Digital answering machine


Hi Bibi - Is this a regular land line? Is the fax machine supposed to answer if it's a fax but not answer if it's a phone call? Let me know exactly what your mothers' setup is please. It sounds to me like the fax is trying to answer all the calls and the screeching she hears is the fax machine try to handshake, or connect, with another fax machine. You've probably heard what that sounds like. Let me know the answers and if you can ask some people that called if they heard anything. Thanks.
