Question about M-Audio Audiophile 2496 PCI Digital Audio Card System

Open Question

I just installed my M-Audio Audiophile 2496 PCI card (it seems this is part of the Delta series of cards?) in Windows 7 (64-bit) and it successfully registered and installed the driver, but when I disable my old sound drivers in Device Manager (the Realtek ones which is the sound integrated on the motherboard) I don't hear anything and I checked the Audiophile driver settings and see no headphone or speaker devices listed like there was in the Realtek driver. I re-enabled the Realtek driver and it seems my headphone jack is connected to the motherboard so it's using the built-in Realktek sound card. How can I get sound from my Audiophile card to my headphones? Do I have to remove the Realktek drivers completely or can I leave them just disabled in Device Manager? I don't see a Headphone jack labeled on the Audiophile card. First screenshot shows the two Realtek drivers (ATI HDMI Audio and Realtek High Definition Audio) and my M-Audio Audiophile driver in the Device Manager: Here you can see how I right clicked on the Realtek driver and disabled it. I did this for the other one. After doing this I tried to play a movie and got no sound: Here is my Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Manage audio devices: As you can see the Speakers (this seems to be device associated with my headphones) are showing the Realtek driver. When I disable the Realtek driver in Device Manager and then go to this same screen it doesn't even show the Speakers device any longer. BTW my headphones use a 1/8" (3.5mm) jack. I don't see anywhere on the Audiophile card where I can plug them in there are only RCA inputs and RCA outputs and the breakout cable has SPDIF inputs and outputs. None of these will accept the 1/8" jack! HELP PLEASE!

I am not able to activate my M Audio Delta series Audiophile sound card. It is asking for delta.sys file

Uninstall the driver of the sound card and carefully install it again. If it does not work again download the driver from the internet the source may be lacking the file delta.sys.

Good Luck!

The driver is installed but the hardware is not recognized.

First, download the latest driver for your card.
Turn off PC and remove the sound card, then turn on PC and carry out the following;
1. Deinstall the driver and reboot the system.
2. Execute the Windows program regedit and search all items for "Delta".
3. Delete all items and groups of items which point to "M Audio Delta".
4.Turn off PC, re-install card and reboot the system.
5. Install the latest M Audio driver.

Try moving the PCI sound card to another PCI slot. On standard PC machines the IRQs are limited to 15 and many cards require their own, not a shared one. (start from the lowest going up... Leave the graphics card in the top slot (if PCI as well)
