    So you have an HP I take it? What is the model of the HP? And you added the SoundBlaster Audigy after you bought the computer? Do you know which exact model it is, ie. SB0400, or Audigy LS, etc

    Do you have any errors in Device Manager or devices without drivers?

    You need to get the drivers from HP for your system and from Creative for your sound card.

    Creative: http://support.creative.com/Products/product_list.aspx?catID=1&CatName=Sound+Blaster#

    Not sure what you mean if you have to remove the hardware, just download and install the drivers.
