Soundcard won't install

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys. I am encountering some serious problems. I am trying to install my Creative ExtremeMusic Soundcard but it won't let me finish the installation. Everytime the installer hits the audio drivers my computer will reboot. I don't have any sound. So i tried to trick the system. I disabled the soundcard and installed the drivers. No problems what so ever. Until I got prompted that it has found a new hardware - wdm sound card blah blah. as soon as the screen comes up my system freezes. I don't know what to do. I am almost certain that the soundcard is not bad. I don't even have the SLI-DR soundcard installed and in the BIOS i disabled AC SOUNd or w/e ... what am I doing wrong or how can I fix this? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Try a different PCI slot if you have not already. Try drivers from Creative site also.
I have tried a different slot and get the same error. I also tried to install it directly from the drivers online. I will get a bsod before the installation is finished. I don't know what to do.

It sounds like your OS might be having an issue.

 

Before attempting another install you really should download and use Driver Cleaner Pro to remove any Creative junk left from previous tries.

Also try installing the drivers in safe mode
I tried that and did a full installation. The first time it froze. So I tried it a second time with only installing the audio drivers. It worked fine. Detected the card but still no sound. So I boot back up into Normal Windows... And it says that it can't detect the audio device used blah blah. So I uninstalled again and tried to install them again in normal windows. Same Thing :( IDK whats wrong. I am going to check the card out tonite at my friends house. If it works in his comp then I will cry haha
