need a little help to install card

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
i have just fitted a new Creative s/b live! card in mt pc.
i only had onboard sound previous.
i have installed a driver, which is really old, but i can't find the cexact new one i need.- waiting for response from creative labs.

with the card i git 2 cables;
2 pin black/white
4 pin white/black/yellow/red
both have thin block connectors , all female.

i can see where they might go, on my card and my board, and i think one may co to my cd drive, i just want to make sure i get it right.

can anybody help.

my troubleshooter says i might need to switch the onboard sound OFF in BIOS.
i have already disabled it in device manager, is that not enough?

i have a 2-pin from cd/rom to card
4-pin from cd/rom to card
4-pin from card to mobo.

if i re-enable my realtek onboard sound , in Dev.Mngr. i get sound okay.

................anybody.......?

i can't get it to be listed in the sound manager list for audio device on the audio tab, only the onboard shows up.

i'm doing something wrong here, also my pc crashed earlier, when i disabled the onboard sound. only that once tho' ????

Did you disable the onboard in bios ? Also do you have a manual for your mobo as it will say what connectors go where for the sound to work & also you have pushed it firmly in place in the PCI slot ?

-O, the card is firmly in, and driver installed, Dev. mngr. says the card is working, no conflicts. (although it does list it twice?)
i dont have a manual, unfortunately.
as for the Bios, i didn't go there yet, don't know how, i did disable the o/b sound in dev. mngr., i thought that would do it, it stopped it working, but didn't replace it with the card.so i re-enabled it again.

You should also be able to download a manual from creative for your card. I got one that way.
