Hi, I recently installed a new sound card (sound blaster PCI512) and I had everything going good sound was blasting through my speakers like it was going out of style. I rebooted and.. hmm, no start up sounds, whats going on. I check my device manager and a little (!) is over my Creative SB16 emulation sound. it says it is not found, not working properly, or does not have all the drivers installed (code 24) anyone know whats up and how to fix it?

Thanks,
MaGe

Hi MaGe, welcome to TSG.

Try placing a check mark in the box that says 'disable in this hardware profile' and try your sound again....I believe you may have to reboot the computer first.

Post a listing of your IRQs....

Start button, run, then type msinfo32 and hit ok....go to hardware, IRQs, edit, select all, edit, copy and come back and paste.

Do you know how to enter your bios setup to see if you have an option to disable the onboard sound?

Another thing you can try as well, place a check mark in the disable in this hardware profile box for the ES1869 onboard sound.

Your display adapter on the same IRQ with the sound card and the EZ card worries me as well.....but give that a try first and see if anything will shift.

Do you have anything connected to the com port? If not, in the bios setup, disable that as well.....that will give you another IRQ for the other devices to play with.

Make sure you restart again to see if you STILL have sound....

Also, at the request of another member and for everyone else as well (we're all STILL LEARNING) if your sound is still working after the reboot, can you re-post a listing of your IRQs now so we can see how they may have shifted around?

Thanks! :)

Hmmm, that's what I was afraid of......

What did you 're-enable' to make it stop working......

Personally, I'd like to see that USB controller move to another IRQ or the sound card.....

Disable the things we did prior.....leave them disabled......I want to see where things move......restart a couple of times.

IRQ 11 is still the problem in my opinon.

The reason I feel IRQ 11 is the problem, is that more often than not, sound and video (at least from my experiences) do not play well together.

Then throw the EZ-card in on the same IRQ......

At least that's my opinion.

Now that you've got them disabled again, repost your IRQs again.

One thing that jumped out at me is that it works
fine with the onboard sound disabled. You're going to have to look on the motherboard and disable it permanently by changing jumper settings if possible in order for this to work properly. I also agree that IRQ 11 is a potential problem. After you get the onboard sound disabled and get the sound working even after rebooting, I would remove my soundcard AND video card both through
Device Manager, reboot, and let windows find and reinstall them on seperate IRQ's. After disabling the onboard sound, IRQ 9 should be free to use. I hope everything works out for you :)
