Trying to install a Creative X-FI Xtreme PCI card (Model # SB0792) on an Inspiron 1100 (the 2.5GHz Celery model, Dell mobo #OWF887, A01 BIOS) - device is brand new, but on installation the card isn't recognised and therefore can't be installed - is this a sign that the card is DOA, or do these particular Dells not like non-Dell upgrades?

Windows should recognize it and ask you to intall a driver for it. Make sure it is secure in the slot and make sure you are using the correct slot. If it still does not recognize it then the card is most likely bad.

Either that or the ethernet chip on the motherboard is failing - you will need to disable this one from the BIOS and install a simple PCI LAN card in its place

I have a creative sound card and i want its sound driver pls tell me what to do vijay


Look at the model number on the Creative sound card. You want to match up the correct drivers.

Once you find it go to Creative Worldwide Support,

http://support.creative.com/

A) Click on the SoundBlaster icon.

B) Click on the soundcard icon that matches yours. I'm going to click on the X-Fi Xtreme Audio icon to use for an example.

Here on the next page we see we are presented with two driver choices.

1) Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio driver 1.04.0090

and,

2) Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio pack 1.04.0079


The 1.04.0090 audio driver is for Vista, and Windows 7.
It also contains the Creative Audio console.
Click on Show Details to the right for more information.

The 1.04.0079 audio pack is for Windows XP, and Vista.
It also has the Creative Audio Console.
Click on Show Details to the right for more information.

When you have the applicable choice, click on the red Download.

On the next page read the Creative Software License Agreement, then click on Agree.

A small window will come up. Write down the file name.
For example I am looking at Opening XFXA_PCDRV_LB_1_04_0079

The file name is > XFXA_PCDRV_LB_1_04_0079.exe

This is the file name I will look for.

Click on Save File.

A small window will come up on the left.
Quickly look at the heading of this window.
This is where the file will download to.

Look for My Documents, (Documents for Vista), or Downloads, or Desktop, in the heading.

Close all windows, go back to the desktop screen. See the file name?

NO?
Click on Start > then click on My Documents. (WinXP)

Don't see the file name there?
Look for a folder named Downloads.
Double-click on the Downloads folder name look for the file name.

When you see the file name double-click on it. Follow the easy instructions of the Installation Wizard.
(Essentially just click on Next, Next, and Finish. Then restart your computer.

Cant get sound card working in Windows XP Pro 64 bit


Go to Add/Remove Programs and uninstall the software related to your soundcard.

Go to Device Manager and remove the sound card it is the device that has an exclamation point or question mark.

Turn off your PC and remove the Card. Then turn it back on again and enter the BIOS setup and disable the built in sound card of your motherboard then press F10 and save the changes.

Restart your computer and verify that windows is not going to scan for missing devices. Check the Device Manager again and look for any devices that has an exclamation point or question mark. If there is none. Turn off your computer put the sound card back in and turn it on again. Put in the CD Driver but exit on the autorun let windows detect the card automatically and wait for it to ask for the location of the drivers. Point or browse to the driver location and let the installation finish and click on ok. Your PC may ask for another restart do that turn on your speaker and listen for the boot up sound if your hear it then your card is now working.
