Prob with sblive 1024

Recommended Posts

HiI turned my PC on one day and windows said.."detecting new hardware.. PCI card"; I hadn't put anything new in. I clicked cancel and looked in Device Manager - my SBLive! 1024 card had been replaced by "unknown PCI device". I tried re-installing the drivers for the SBLive! card - and but it didn't work. It has SBLive 1024 under sound controllers, but says the drivers are not working and to update them. So far I have tried: re-installing the card and drivers and card; a different PCI slot; installing the drivers first - but windows never recognises it as a sound card, just an unknown PCI device! I know the gardware isn't faulty because I dual-boot with Linux Mandrake and the sound is fine under Linux. Any ideas would be very much appreciated! Thanks,

Windows is great, ain't it:(

Post what version of windows  you are running at the fix is

different depending upon the version.

But..........removing the device from the o/s while in safe mode and then removing the hardware and rebooting.  

There is a conflict in the registry and checking for complete removal of drivers and reboot again.

I would reinstall and then point windows to the correct drivers.

Don't let windows pick the drivers.

If that don't work you can always try changing the slot of your sblive.. i have a sound blaster live value 5.1 and it wouldnt run until i switched it to the last pci slot on the mobo.

 

Then again i'm running win2k.. so you could have different possibilities.. but try em all :)

You may want to try going to the device manager and removing the sblive icon then rebooting.  It may be that the device manager for sblive got corrupted.
