No Sound Driver Software Doesn't See Sound Card

All hardware or software issues that do not have a specific forum go here.

these posts are why I am reluctant to go 64 bit. Not too smart with this type of thing. Wish I was. :(

These posts show that if you go, you better go big or go home.

I know when I go 64bit, it means a complete overhaul of both hardware and software.

64-bit processing is the coming trend. But, 128-bit processing may be in our near future!
The concept of 128-bit processing was considered around 1976.

Back to Square One Again

Postby OneSpirit » Sat Mar 22, 2014 9:30 am

Well sir .... I just got this sound card with a gameport today that is suppose to be for window 7 64 bit ...
Requirements:
1. Available PCI slot
2. CD-ROM for Driver installation
3. Speakers
4. Windows3.1/95/98/ME/2000/XP/2003/VISTA, Windows NT 4.X/5.X, Win7 64-bit

yet when I go to install the driver I get this message during the installation....

"please plug -in C-media pci audio"

Of course it is plugged in ... I double checked it to make sure it was seated properly and I disable the on board sound in the BIOS, but still I get this message. I'm back in the same boat again. Anyone know what the heck is going on? :-|

More Troubles

Postby OneSpirit » Sat Mar 22, 2014 1:02 pm

I tried the other PCI slot to see if I got a response there. I had to remove the GTX280 because it was blocking the slot and put in the old pci-e card. I checked the device manager and there was some kind of audio listing under the sound. I tried to install the software and got the same results it claiming it needs the card plugged in. I put everything back the way it was including the sound card ... when into the device manager and found there was no listing for sound. HUH? :-| :roll: Ah ..... Help? .... :(

Did you disable the onboard sound card first in the bios? otherwise loads of conflicts will happen.

Yes sir I did ... tell me ... what is the installation of UEFI on my mobo and how would it affect my sound card or not affect it rather to where the mobo doesn't see it? Is there a way to corrected so it will see the pci card?

I put in a ticket with Gigabyte to see if the mobo is compatible with that card. :-|

I seem to have tracked down the manufacturer of this card:
http://www.win-star.com/product/product ... &CatID=117

If only that page would open to see if there's a new driver set/FAQ for the card....

If you disabled all features of the on-board audio, including possible MIDI/game port and modem use, yet no 'discovery' of the add-in card, check the BIOS pages for a "Reset Configuration Data" which has a yes/no choice. The POST process will check every IRQ and DMA assignment as to use, and concur with the BIOS pages as to settings. If any errors, a notice will be posted. If you note that "Reset Configuration Data" control line, set it to 'yes' and restart.
Check the Hardware/Device Manager page.. note if there are any flags for devices. Do a "scan for hardware changes" from the primary header listing for the system (right-click on it).
Some devices require installing the software (driver) first, then the hardware. Others the opposite.
Should not matter what PCI slot the audio card is installed to. Try on another system, see if it is detected. If not, possibly defective?

http://www.win-star.com/supports/

all go to a page with links to ati.com and nvidia.com
Ok so we have a cheap sound card from some POS Chinese manufacturer. Let's try the reference drivers then from cmedia themself:
