No Sound Driver Software Doesn't See Sound Card

Postby OneSpirit » Sat Mar 15, 2014 12:51 am

I have the Sound Blaster Live! 5.1 PCI card, when I try to install the driver I get a message that it could not locate the product. This is the mobo.

In the device manager the PCI input device doesn't have a driver and I haven't been able to find one for Win7 64bit. I'm wondering is that part of my problem? Also the multimedia audio controller doesn't have a driver. I don't have any sound. In the device manager under sound, the NVidia high definition audio is installed ... could that be causing a conflict? :-|

If using an add-in sound card, go into the BIOS and disable features for any on-board audio.. including a MIDI port. Conflicts can arise if not done. Same for a modem, if not used. There are drivers for SB Live! audio cards for Win 7.. but no mention of 64-bit or 32-bit specific. The installer program should detect the OS needs and install accordingly.
Here is a link to all the models in the Sound Blaster/Audigy/Creative products line.

I pulled the card and looked all over, but I didn't see anything about a version. These are all the numbers I found on the card ... first there was the sticker on the back with the model number and serial number.

Sound Blaster Live! 5.1 Model:SBO100 S/N: MSBO100140313289 ... FM4 was under the model number in small letters. Here some numbers I don't know what they are ... 0265MN219A ACH ... then a 94V-0. That's all I saw. :-|

I checked the BIOS and the only thing I saw was the audio controller ... nothing else pertaining to sound. The thing is the driver software I am trying to install doesn't see the product. Is a driver needed for the PCI slot? :-|

I found that I can get a sound card with a gameport for win7 64 Bit . Well alrighty then!! That's very good news. I will be able to fly FS2004 with most of the 4G of memory. I'm happy. :D

No special "driver" needed for a PCI slot.. but the device in the slot may require one. The primary motherboard driver will provide info for all features present, including chipset, device slot, USB and such. While the driver version for XP may be nearly identical to that for Win 7 or 8, certain signatures and parsing may cause non-acceptance to the newer OS versions.
There is an old rule.. if the OS inception date is newer than the device, likely there is an appropriate driver in the OS install library. But if the device is newer than the OS inception date, OEM supplied drivers may be mandated.
Any reason that you don't want to use the on-board sound? Should be nearly as good as what the SB Live! card could produce.. but no game port. You can get USB to MIDI/game port adapters at not much cost. The popularity of a MIDI/game port connection is not as popular today, due to USB enhancements. Yet many sound cards do have them included.. for the digital music device aficionado.

Download here:

SB Live..

Extract the driver and run it in compatibilty mode for win XP.. Done this before with good results... Your Soundblaster is SB100, one of the really early models. Windows usually sticks driver in for them, but the Gameport is the bane of contention as it is a legacy item (USB taken over)..
