im pretty sure my sound card is just Sound Blaster Audigy, when i looked it up on the creative site, thats what it was called. I just downloaded the newest driver straight from creative, supposed to be compadible with windows 7, atleast thats what they claim

not sure what specs ya want so could you be more specific? sorry, new to the forum lol

Reason for asking which Audigy is that there are two completely different drivers,

- one is for the Audigy 1, 2 and 4 series of cards

- one is for the Audigy SE/DE/LS/Value series of cards, and has about as much relation to the ones above as apples to oranges.

and one will not work with the other.

Computer specs; as in make and model if something like a Dell or HP, or list of components if custom built.

I'm using Sound Blaster Audigy and using the drivers for XP just fine. I tried their latest download which lists Windows 7 but I think that driver package may be for more that one type of card. I got no sound with those. I also tried the Vista ones but they wouldn't install.

If you look at their Windows 7 driver availability chart, the driver for the plain Audigy is TBC (to be confirmed)

motherboard: MSI Amethyst-M
cpu: AMD Athlon 64, 2200 MHz (11 x 200) 3500+
RAM: 1.5 gb DDR
exact sound card: Creative Audigy SE (SB0570) Sound Card

thats probably all that will be needed, rest is just video card and stuff ,that works.

my problem is that windows 7 wont even detect the card being inserted tho, i dont think having the right driver will fix that really, idk tho i could be wrong.

thats for being patient with me lol

In Device manager, is there under Unknown is there a multimedia device showing?

Also one reason for it not detecting the card can be down to having an unsupported chipset on the motherboard (ATI RS482), and using whatever Windows installed for chipset drivers.

well it does show an unnamed multimedia device, but thats my broken internal sound card, whoops. It could possibly be my sound blaster, but how would i make it figure that out lol

idk much about chipsets, anyway i could fix that in windows 7? the sound card works in xp, im actually using it right now lol, if that means anything that would help u figure otu how to fix it lol
