Install new sound card. Creative tech


Before you install the sound card, you install the drivers for it. Drivers are small 'pieces' of software, that allow the Operating System to 'communicate' with the device. If you did not, then No, Windows did not recognize your sound card.

(In essence. Read on) (Not to insult your intelligence. Windows XP, is an example of an Operating System. So is Vista)

In this instance, the device is a Sound Card. Those drivers are on a CD, that should have been provided with the sound card.

Reasoning that you install the drivers first, then the Sound card is this,

When you install a device, Windows 'recognizes' it, as soon as Windows starts up. Windows 'breaks it's neck' to hurry up, and find drivers to match the device. If there are no actual drivers, then Windows chooses from Thousands of Generic drivers it has, and matches one up.

This is No good. The device needs THE drivers for it.
Then the owner comes along, and installs the drivers later. (Or in your case, didn't)

This causes a driver conflict.

BUT, you didn't indicate you installed the CD, therefore didn't install the drivers, and Windows is using the generic drivers. Crappy quality results.

Suggest you do this. Computer off, and unplugged
from the surge protector. Press the Power On button, and hold it in. Hold it in for a count of Five seconds, then let go. (And I mean Five at least. Count, 1001,..1002,..1003,..1004,..1005)
Do this procedure two more times.

What you are doing is clearing CMOS error codes, and resetting your BIOS, back to the factory default setting.

Computer unplugged, computer case open, touch the metal frame of the computer case. (Work on a table) This will relieve your body of Static electricity. Your body always carries static electricity. Static will silently fry out, your delicate computer hardware components.

Now take the sound card out. Leave the case open, plug the computer back into power. WAIT 1 minute, then turn the computer on. When Windows has fully loaded, install the CD for the sound card, Follow the instructions.
At the end, if it asks you do you want to restart your computer, NO!
Close all windows, until you are back at your desktop screen. Shut your computer down normally. (Start>Turn off computer>Shut Down)

Unplug the computer from power. Forget this part, and you may be buying a different computer.
Install the sound card. Close the computer case. Plug the computer back in. WAIT 1 minute. Turn the computer on.
Now how's your sound?

Sound card problem


Did you reinstall the sound card physycally on the main board or did you install new drivers?
You need to check the device manager (start-settings-control panel-system-select " hardware" tab at top, then click on device manager)
If you have your sound card listed in its category (sound, video and game controllers) or listed in the "other" category and it has a yellow ! next to it, you must right click on it and hit uninstall. one of those will cause the computer not to even look for the sound card for install because the computer thinks it's already installed , even if its wrong.
so if you see one of these, expand the + to see the device , then right click on it and select uninstall .
then procede to load the new driver. restart
Regards.

or they are working good or currupted

here is how you can find out
go to my computer right clik it
select property
go to hardware
select device manager
here in new window you can see all installed devices
find out "sound, video and game controller"
now click + mark on leftside of it
it will drop down the list of available sound/ video devices
if you dont see any sound device then you have to install sound drivers
if you see any sound device but with yellow with it then its installed but not working properly
in that case also you need to install drivers once again
