Had a hard time getting my sound card to work properly when I installed it 2 years ago but finally managed and it was working just fine.
Yesterday I needed the microphone and found out it wasn't working when plugged into my soundcard. I enabled High definition audio device and plugged the mic in the front of comp and it worked fine so I saw it wasn't the mic who had the problem.
I was then told to update my drivers
and that might fix the problem with the mic which I did but now nothing works anymore. The mic doesn't work (which at this point I don't care at all about) but most important the audio console gives me the message "current selected audio device is not supported by the application do you want to select another audio device" and I also get the very same message if I go to sounds---playback devices---properties---sound blaster---configure your audio settings. So I can't access Bass Boost, Bass Management, EAX, EQ and the rest. My sound is tinny and has no punch or volume.
I tried to roll back the driver
, checked on other drivers did a system restore... same.
I then realized I should disable High Definition audio device which I did... same.
Then when I could't sleep last night I thought maybe I should go in the Bios and disable it there even if it says it's disabled in system devices. Sure enough it was still enabled so I disabled it and said to myself: NOW it's going to work again. But no.
Anybody have any ideas please before I spend another sleepless night.
