pfft84, welcome to the forums.

What is your is your old sound card? I can pretty much guarantee that you will probably have better luck finding drivers (or a workaround), than getting that new sound card to work. Do yourself a favor and return it. If we can't get your old one going, then let us know how much you are willing to spend and we can recommend one that will work with Windows 7.

P.S. Rocketfish is nothing more than Best Buy's own garbage in-house brand.

Try this, I use the rocketfish 5.1 card from bestbuy and these are the drivers I use that seem to run fine with win7 x64 Rocketfish - Rocketfish 5.1-Channel PCI Sound Card or you can even install the drivers from the cd the card came with.

I've been having the same issue. I'm d/ling the drivers now...do I install in 7, or can I install in XP?

OK, went ahead with installing them in XP, it works fine.

Rebooted into 7, still have "no adiou output device is installed" in the system tray.

Tried 3 more times to update, install drivers for the card, everytime a BSOD.

What now? I have had other rocketfish stuff that was ok. Can anyone suggest a good, cheap pci sound card for 7?
