DBZ - Yes its in me!
Freind of mine just bought an audigy 1 soundcard , windows detects it and begins to use it but if you reboot the machione will not boot , take the card out it boots fine put it back in same thing one use and no booting. Any help ?


The First Rebirth
For my ASUS mobo they recommend PCI slot 3 (start from the AGP side), but it's plugged into slot 5 currently.

Need more info MOBO, OS, stuff like that.

Good grief Charlie Brown
But you can do it for one boot right. Get the driver & install before rebooting again. If that does not work it might be a faulty card.


Had the same problem when i bought an Audigy card. Ended up taking it back for refund after changing the drivers and just about everything I could think of. Was said on various newgroups that there are some compatability problems with this card and I just couldn't be doing with it so I'm back with my 'live value' card.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
