I have a Fujitsu Siemens Scaleo P computer which I have just upgraded from XP to Windows 7, but for some reason my sound card does not seem to work, I have been onto the Fujitsu website but can't find any drivers for windows 7 to upgrade my sound card, I would be greatful for any suggestions as to how I might overcome this problem.
i have installed Windows 7 on this machine to test and it works perfectly except for the sound, Intel(R) 82801GBM (ICH7-M) LPC Interface Controller - 27B9 is the only thing wrong when i go into device manager driver upto date, and don't know if this is the problem but, have done some googling for additional drivers but to no avail and fujitsi have no solution, tried the vista solutions still no go. anyone who can point me in right direction which is probably staring me in the face.
I have a problem installing Ultimate on my laptop. When I get to the part of the install where I choose wich hard drive or partition to install it on, the installation doesn't detect any of my hard drives.
From what I've gathered from browsing different forums my problem lies in that I have to install drivers for the disc controller in order to detect the hard drives as I belive the drives are in a RAID-setup, but I can't seem to find the right ones.
From the information in the Controlpanel in Vista (wich I'm currently running) I've gathered that I have a:
* Intel(R) 82801HEM/HBM SATA AHCI Controller
* Intel(R) ICH8M Ultra ATA storage Controllers - 2850
I've tried to load the drivers for these that I got from Fujitsu-Siemens, but I get the same problem. Could it be that these drivers are just for Vista? And in that case where do I find some for Windows 7? I've seen posts from people running Windows 7 on the same laptop so it should be possible to preform the install, but how?
Ok, so I have that problem with the Creative cards where it doesn't play nice with my Nvidia chipset and Win 7 64. Horrible sound when it works at all, clicks and pops and crackles. But most of the time it doesn't work at all.
The sound card in question is the X-fi Platinum I believe, and my mobo is an Asus A8N Deluxe.
I have been totally unable to find any information on decent sound cards that WILL work given my equipment. I would like to find something that provides rich sound similar to the X-fi Platinum. It was great while it lasted. Now I can't even get the crappy onboard sound to work!
I upgraded from Windows XP to Windows 7 and now my Sound Card and Network Adapter don't work. On Device manager is telling me there are no drivers for these. I went to Dell Support and downloaded drivers for them and still they don't work. amva55 has chosen the best answer to his/her question.Click here to view the answer that was selected.
So I installed 7 Pro RTM, and plugged in my external sound card and no dice. I wouldn't normally care as I have a working PCI soundcard, except that its a really really high quality DAC, and it cost me a lot of money, so I'd rather not just forget all about it
On XP it uses just generic usbaudio.sys, it works on macs, linux, etc without any issues. What can I try? I attempted to copy across a windows xp version of usbaudio.sys, but that didn't seem to help (I'm not entirely sure I did this correctly).
I bought a Fujitsu P4, 2.66 GHZ, computer. Its memory capacity was 256 MB but i upgraded to 512 GB so that i could load Windows 7. I loaded Windows 7 and after the installation, there was no sound. I re-installed again but still there was no sound
I have built them formatted them, fixed them added components many many times...This is my issue, Internet explore won't open....well it opens and I get a ap crash notification. I take out both of my different videos cards and use internal video and it does not crash. The problem is this is my living room movie file player and the video cards make a huge difference....I also need explorer as well....now Chrome works but that is not what I want..
PI have to use onboard sound card to have audio through HDMI output from video card. The external sound card installed is Xonar DG and it comes with SPDIF output header to be interfaced with video card. But I do not see no such header on the video card. I wonder what video card has such an interface header.
as stated in the subject, I am unable to hear any sound from my speakers since upgrading to the windows 7 64 bit. I followed the other post that I found on this but I still cannot hear any sound.I have a dell inspiron 531. The hardware ids from the device manager areHDAUDIOFUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0888&SUBSYS_1028020E&REV_1000 HDAUDIOFUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0888&SUBSYS_1028020EI have installed the realtek drivers and they as working but I still get nothing but a slight hiss from my speakers. I have tried them on my laptop and they work fine.Does anybody know what might be causing this? I am half tempted to get a new sound card but I am reluctant as it says my existing one is working (it just seems to have forgotten to tell the speakers!) If anybody knows a fix for this I really would be eternally grateful
I've solved my gaming graphics issues, namely by choosing the parts I wanted rather than buying yet another "Media-Center"-style all-in-one unit that did everything, but not very well, I'm now in need of a solution to my present awful headphone sound quality. I have a generic Creative Labs Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio card that is not very good, sound-wise, and, because it doesn't even include an optical out plug, goes unused. I purchased a refurbished Turtle Beach headset w/DSS decoder, and, while it works as advertised, the headphones are terrible for music. I've replaced the TB Headset with a much better-sounding Pyle set, and will buy some "real" headphones as soon as I've determined that the source itself is sending out a good-sounding signal.I've seen pro and con arguments about sound cards, like the Xonar series that have headphone amplification included. My issue with that is I am more concerned with the graphics for games, and I've built this system with SLI (another gtx580) in mind, and I do not see enough room under or in between the dual GPUs for proper installation of such huge sound cards, though I'm glad to have my ignorance in this area demonstrated. The anti-Sound card group seems to be gravitating towards a separate headphone amplifier, and I"ve seen them from the $20 dollar model included free with another headset I purchased, to the $1800 tube amps. I think I would like to either go this route, or purchase a home stereo receiver that can output the PC sound, thus having both satisfactory amplification for low-volume music listening( or ear-bleeding levels, if desired) and the ability to power speakers elsewhere. I guess what I'm asking is for some entry-level priced PC headphone amplifiers to start off with. I see countless rating comments for the FiiO series, and while the prices are certainly attractive, the fact that they're so low-priced also makes me leery of their actual amplification abilities while staying neutral in tone.
I just bought a new pc from Dell. I opted out of buying the SB sound card they had as an option and now I am sorta regretting that. I loaded RC 7100 as soon as I got the machine and after going through this forum I am sorta left with the impression that SB cards don't work with Win 7. Is that really the case?
I was looking at an "Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium Sound Card" but if it will just cause me grief it's not worth it. Does anyone have a suggestion as to what I can get and not pull my hair out trying to get it to work? The main game I play sounds sorta mediocre with the on-board sound.
normally i only have 1 sound card/sound device in sound settings when i use hdmi with my tv, i have 2 sound devices in there, and i can choose 1 one of them as default, and all applications i run will play sound on that default device, so i choose hdmi (my tv) as default, open chrome for my mom watch movies, sound play on my tv (hdmi), that's what i want and i open firefox, go to Internet, sound also play on my tv (hdmi), that's not what i want, i want it (firefox) to play sound on my pc, so my mom can watch movies on tv, and i can watch Internet on pc
is there a way to do this? a way to set per-application sound card/sound device setting? i know some programs like windows media player or vlc can let you choose sound card, but firefox, chrome do not. i tried indievolume and it did not work, even uninstalled, reinstalled but did not work, or is there any browser that let me choose sound card setting (like wmp and vlc, but these 2 are not browser)
and does anyone know if mac or windows 8 has this feature as built-in? if windows 8 does then i might upgrade
I fly MS FSX and I want to be able to chat to ATC with my headphones and then hear the engine noises coming out of my speakers and sub-woofer.
I have a sound-card and my motherboard has on-board sound. I can't find the bios setting to turn it on and I can't see any hint of it anywhere on the computer. Can someone help me get the on board sound going? My computer is homebuilt, I recently installed Windows 7 pro 64bit.
This is probably just a stop gap but I was finally able to get my old Creative Audigy 2 card to work with 5.1 surround by using Audigy 4 drivers for Windows 7. I haven't been able to adjust bass and treble yet but I've been too busy just enjoying the music to get around to looking for ways to make that happen. Music sounds better than it ever did in XP or Vista!
It may not be a complete fix but at least it'll get you some sound until they come up with driver for those of us with older sound cards. Be patient as it takes a while for the complete install!
I bought a computer second hand, and all in all it's an upgrade from my last computer, except for one thing: I can not for the world get my speakers to play any kind of 5.1 sound.
The sound drivers installed are Realtek High Definition Audio 126.96.36.19902 - but this could be a mistake on my side, as for all I know, I'm not even supposed to have them installed. I just assumed I needed the Realtek Audio Manager like I did on my last computer, to get the 5.1 sound to work, and this is probably completely wrong, heh.
So how can I get the 5.1 sound to work? What information do you need to guide me? And how do I find that information?
If the motherboard type is needed (I read somewhere else it might be) then I assume it's this: ASUSTeK Computer INC. 2A73h 1.01
When I go to the Control Panel, there is no Realtek Audio Manager there. Clicking Sound, I get the following information:
Speakers Realtek High Definition Audio Default Device
Clicking Configure, I only have ONE option: Stereo. No 5.1.
I really want the option to listen to sound from all my speakers (I don't even care if it's pure 5.1 sound, as long as there's music/sound coming from all the speakers I'm happy!)
I have a video card that I want to install in my computer running Win 7 Professional. The card is only supported with xp drivers. Win 7 Professional has XP MODE where users can operate in an Xp environment. Can I use my video card in XP mode? Even if it is not the primary video card perhaps?
i have just bought an LG 100hz TV and i have the TV connected via HDMI to DVI to nvidia GTX 460, in nVidia panel i dont get the option to change the refresh rate to 100hz, do you have ANY idea how i can use tru motion if the TV is connected to a PC?
