Question about Inland 58016 Wavetable PCI Sound Card

1 Answer

Still no sound

Hi, Still haven't gotten this to work. For starters, I wouldn't know winzip or the absence thereof if it hit me over the head. Second, when I double click the new icon on my desktop which appeared when I went to that url and downloaded the software, and which looks like a manila folder with a zipper, I just get a window (that looks like an Internet Explorer window) with 24 files in it. There is no install button. I placed those files in a new folder located within "My Documents" so I can find it. I went to "device manager". Within it were several "PCI communication device" entries and one "PCI card". I right clicked them all. I got no "uninstall" option, but did get "remove" and did that for each. I hope that wasn't a mistake. (There also was no "update driver" option as someone else recommended. Though there was "refresh". Perhaps I should have done that. I suspect the matter is moot though now as they're all gone.) I rebooted and got an "Add New Hardware Wizard" window. I could choose "Automatic search for a better driver" (that didn't work) or "Specify location of the driver". The latter gives me a new window, again with 2 options. One is "Search for best driver" which allowed me to "Browse" and choose the folder with the 24 files I put in "My Documents". (That didn't work either.) The other choice was "display a list of all the drivers in a specific location". This gave me a long list - didn't know what to choose. Two "other" type categories proved fruitless. Choosing "sound, video, and game controllers" made the computer ask me the manufacturer and model. Inland was not listed, so I chose generic. The response I got was "The driver you have chosen was not written specifically for the selected hardware and may not work properly." It wasn't recommended, but I went ahead anyway. I got a progress bar - seemed to do something, as to what I don't know - it went by pretty fast. Then I ended up with a message that "Windows was unable to locate the software for this device". And I remain without sound. I'm interested in further advice, but this isn't going very well. So I want to start looking for other solutions. In that vein I want to start by asking, Who are you guys anyway? Is this Inland technical support? Does the company still exist?

Ok, it sounds as if your trying to install zipped files; you can't Remove your sound card, you should also dissable the onboard sound on your motherboard in the bios; if you have'nt already. Go back to the folder you downloaded(which will be a zipped folder for faster downloading and security). Right click on the folder as shown below and unzip using XP's unzipper. When it is unzipped this is the folder you make Windows look to for the installation. put your sound card back in and re boot. If this does not work it is the wrong .dll or ini installation file.

    p.s the PCI communication device will be your modem which you have probably uninstalled, but the drivers should be automatically found when you boot up again, check in the device manager for exclamation marks, this will show if there are no drivers installed or found for the particular device.

If I'm looking at the description of what happened correctly, the only thing I'm perceiving from this is the motor won't start. The clanking sound you're hearing is possibly the starter bolts may have backed out of the starter. I hope this get you going again soon. Jesus loves you, John 3:16-17 (KJV)

How do I know whether starter is defective?

The clicking is the solenoid ate the starter. You need to verify that the main battery cable to the starter has a good connection. There is a way to jumper the terminals at the starter to make it turn but you need to know which ones. If you can get to the starter, I would try tapping on it while someone turns the key. Used a hammer but hit the case, not the aluminum housing. If it starts, the brushes are probably worn inside and it needs to be changed or rebuilt. At least you get the engine started and you can get it to the shop if this works. Has gotten many people out of a bind. Works great for us to get vehicles into the shop instead of pushing.

It was given tome but it't very dirty. How do I disassemble toclean it?

Look for screws to disassemble. In the absence thereof, then look for seams that can carefully be pried so as to release the snap ons that hold it together. Makes notes or take pictures as you disassemble so you can put it back together and have no problems later..

My jeep wont start. i put gas in the vehicle, then after that tried to start it and it wouldn't even turn over. the battery still works, but i cant get it started?

I would recommend testing the starter.

A way that can sometimes get it started if it is the starter, is to hit the starter with something. Like a rubber mallet or hammer. Just not too hard, some small hits should do it.

Another recommendation is, if it is a manual/stick shift, then put it in 2nd, hold the clutch, have a friend push the jeep till its going about 5-10mph and pop the clutch while in second. It should start up, if its just the starter.

Hi, this is usually caused by dead spots on the starter commutator. If whacking the starter with a hammer will make it work, you can be pretty sure that is the problem. If you aren't sure, have the starter tested at your local parts chain. If it works off the car, then I would check the rest of the starter circuit.

PM800-M2 No sound

If you don't have the manual for the PM800-M2 dowload it from the ECS website.

There is a front panel audio header at the back of the motherboard just in front of the onboard sound rear connector.
If the front panel out put isn't being used the front panel audio connector requires 2 jumpers to be on the header in the correct locations.

Actually I already tried that

Try another way around,right click your sound card in device manager and click update driver; forcing it to look wherever you have the setup.exe stored on your pc, the file you are using is probably not a manual setup, but has the required .ini or .dll file required for your card.
