No Sound With Audigy 2 Sound Card

Oct 26, 2009

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!

Audigy 2 Zs Sound Card Problem

Oct 28, 2009

I'm using an audigy 2 zs, just updated the sound card by downloading from creativelab. I have a problem with the card in windows 7 though:

I like to get the treble all the way up, and the bass up a bit, it makes things sound alot nicer. But, everytime I do this, the voices of characters when I watch DVDs or play video games become really low, everything else sounds great though, its just dialogue between characters thats just so low you have to put your ear right next to the speakers to hear them or something, then music from the background is blasting loudly in my ear...the treble and bass setting never gets properly saved also, everything I restart the computer, they get reset.

anyone else experiencing the same problem? It was like this in the beta for me also...

Installing Audigy Speakers With Realtek Sound Card?

May 25, 2011

I just bought an xps 8300 with a realtek sound card installed. But the spseaker system I have is Audigy Sound Blaster 2ZS. I'm trying to install my speakers, but I keep getting an error message that says my device is not found, and it's all hooked up properly. Do I need to uninstall the realtek program and then install my audigy speakers, or is that even possible.

Creative Audigy 2 Sound Issues

Nov 2, 2009

While playing a game, listening to music, talking on ventrilo my audio starts getting distorted. The best description I can think of is it sounds like a metallic freaky sound. It last for a minute or so and then it starts to clear up and returns to normal. This happens a couple times per day and appears to be more prevalent when using multiple apps. I have uninstalled and installed the lastest creative drivers as well as trying Daniel K's driver. I also have reverted to the windows default driver.

They all do the same thing. Windows gives me a message saying that the driver is experiencing problems and it asks me if I want to disable it. I do not have any issues with the onbard audio when I enable it. I prefer to get the soundlblaster working properly since the sound is alot better IMO when it works.

Creative Audigy LS No Sound Through S / PDIF

Nov 18, 2009

Recently I bought the logitech Z-5500, along with a lot of cables.

I want to hook up 2 speaker sets to my Audigy LS, my standard speakers and the Z-5500. I connected the standard speakers with the 3 normal 3.5mm jacks. However now I want to connect my Z-5500 to my sound card using the digital input (I/O), I am doing this via a 3.5mm jack to Toslink (optical) and that Toslink cable goes into my Z-5500. Well the problem I am having at the moment is this:

a) Are the creative drivers screwing with my sound?

b) My set up is wrong and I need another approach.

I definitely hope it's a) because I don't want to buy other cables and wasted 16 euro's on this one >.<. Anyways I hope someone can help me with this.

Sound Blaster Audigy Giving Errors

Jul 20, 2009

I cleaned the dust from the comp & since then I am getting this error, sound is only working on front 2 speakers. i ensured the card is properly installed, which it is. Last 4 months its been working fine with 4.1 speakers.

Now I cant start the EAX control setting.

I uninstalled the card & drivers & cleaned the registry then reinstalled the drivers from CD.

On installation of the drivers & sound it detects by old speakers as stereo only but all 4 speakers give sound which is too bad, I can now use the EAX control settings .

then I run the windows update it download a creative driver which when installed does show me 4.1 speakers but now the EAX control panel wont open & gives error.

"the audio device supported by this application is not detected. The application will exit"

any clue what went wrong & how can I get this working?

Creative Sound Blaster Audigy LS Not Working

Jan 12, 2009

I've installed Windows 7 on my desktop with dual boot to Vista. Everything's been working fine but I haven't been able to properly setup my sound-card to function properly. As of now, I currently have no sound and I've been through many different drivers from the Creative website.

I've also tried running them in compatibility mode with Windows Vista and Windows XP SP3.

I am currently getting this error message under the "Device Status" In Device Manager, "Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)".

Windows has been automatically installing the driver version dated June 13 2007.

Can anyone please help me with this issue? It is currently ruining my Windows 7 experience!

Sound Blaster Audigy 2 Drivers Problem

Nov 23, 2009

my sound card is the SB audigy 2. Back in XP the drivers usually worked fine and produced the right 'loudness' of sound.

It seems in windows 7 to only produce sound at the 40%-60% levels compared to XP. i know this for a fact since i've done testing.

So people told me to downland the daniel k drivers (SB Audigy Series Support Pack 3.6 (11/09/2009) - Creative Labs)

New problem: These drivers worked and fixed the problem however after i restart it goes back to the 40%-60% sound levels. What is happening is it rolling back the driver or what and how do I fix it?

More info: I run the installer and it asks me to restart to uninstall the old drivers I do that. Then when the computer reboots I re run the installer and the drivers install. Now my sound works perfectly however when I restart the next time it's back to the problem.

any ideas?

SB Audigy SE - Driver Works, Sound Doesn't

Dec 10, 2009

So I have a SB Audigy SE (SB0570) and I installed Windows 7 about a month ago. Initially, my sound did not work even though I installed the drivers correctly. It began working one day when I restarted the computer in safe mode and then restarted it again normally.

Today, however, it failed again. The only thing that I can think of that has changed is that I installed drivers and software for my Sony Handycam last night. I've since uninstalled the software, but to no avail. When I click on the sound icon in the system tray with Winamp playing, I can see the green bar jumping up and down, signifying that there is sound. I've tried using speakers and headphones, so I know it's the sound card that's causing the problem.

I have uninstalled my drivers and I've tried daniel_k's drivers (first the ones that were too new for the SE - lol - and then the ones that were designed for the SE, the 2.0 version), the drivers that Windows 7 automatically downloaded for me, the 917x support pack, and the drivers that Creative provides on their site for Windows 7. None of them made any difference. My current driver reports its version as, and Windows says that it's working correctly.

Can anyone tell me why I can't get sound even though my drivers seem to work? What might have caused this seemingly random problem?

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

Headphone Amplification And Better Sound Sans Sound Card

Oct 21, 2012

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.

Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium Sound Card Compatibility

Jun 6, 2009

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.

Per-application Sound Device / Sound Card Setting?

Jan 14, 2013

[window 7 ultimate]

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

FPS Drop Because Of Sound Card / Sound Card Drivers

Sep 19, 2009

I've recently upgraded my os to windows 7, and noticed a significant

fps drop in all games I've installed. The problem seems to come from the sound card.

I've disabled it in device manager and I gained a steady 15-20 more in most of the applications.

Any idea what to do? Is it a driver issue or something? I got an Athlon 64x2 4600+, Asus M2N mainboard,

2 gigs of ram, Gainward 8800GS video card, Sound Blaster Live 24bit soundcard.

Drivers are downloaded from creative.
