Sound Blaster Live! 5.1 Sound Card: I had bought new creative 4.1 inspire m4500 but in...


Greetings,

It looks to me that the some of the options might be disabled in the sound properties menu.

Double click on the sound icon present on the left hand side of the side bar. Once the volume menu opens up, then click on the 'Options' menu ---------> Select Properties ---------> Once the Property Menu opens up. Look for the options Rear', 'Subwofer', 'Side', 'Front'.
Ensure all these options are selected. Click 'Ok' tab and close the box.

This should resolve your issue.

Please feel free to reply in case you face problem.

Have a nice day !

Stereo Speaker troubleshooting


It sounds like the audio jack itself has internal damage. Depending on how it is mounted on your laptop case, or possibly on an internal circuit board inside the laptop; it might be possible to repair the jack or replace with a new 1/8" audio jack. Some soldering skill may be required after disassembling the laptop and getting access to the jack.

Spdif pins


First of all when you got these pictures were they from *********** board?If they were did you wear a wrist bracelet to prevent Electro Static Discharge (ESD)? If not you may have just ruined your computer. But there is a chance you didn't. Next I am not positive but you might need to get a three pin SPDIF connector from Radio Shack. But I would try the one you have. See if it works. But I must warn you going inside your computer if you are not a technician can be very harmful to your computer. So if you take my advice Touch some part of metal on the outside edge so you are grounded to your computer.

P.S. Damage from ESD may not be right away. It can be months from when the computer was shocked. If my advice doesn't work tell me and i will give you much more help.

Hope this Helps.

Lots of noise when laptop power cord is plugged in


You must be running on pc, or it sounds like you may have a ground loop issue. If you are running a mac, then bus power over the firewire should be enough. If your running on a pc, try getting a pcmcia card with 6 pin firewire ports. If not then your pc laptop will have to power the 410 via ac adapter. That means both should be plugged in tot he wall. Ive gotten that interference before, and gett it on any audio, whether im producing or playing itunes. I find the trick is to reset the 410 via the output window in the top right. It's right above the level knob. Also, try just installing the latest driver, with the 410 disconnected, then launch it from a different file path than the icon.

I still use it for the macbook pro, and its not always top notch. I bought it 3 years ago for 500, and i see what 500 buys nowadays.......MOTU!!!!

Keep me posted.
