I have a Mesh PC with XP and a preinstalled Audigy soundcard. Recently i encountered a serious error with my HDD and was forced to format. After reinstalling drivers and programs i realised that my computer wasn't acknowledging the presence of my Sound Blaster Audigy Platinum Pro sound card. I have tried to install sound blaster software but it said that my hardware is not installed correctly. All connections between the sound card and the computer seem to be correct. This problem never occured before the pc was formatted. Any help would be appreciated.
Do you have the original Audigy pro cd. If I remember there is some uninstall info on there and all registry entries for the creative must be removed before you can reinstall. I seem to recall having to do this about 4 years ago.
I did reformat the HDD again before xmas in case i might have installed the programs in the wrong order or anti-virus software was interfering with the sound card programs. However this was not the case and the PC was sent back to Mesh to have it fixed. Since it's return there have been no further problems. Unfortunately i have not found the cause of the problem but thanx to everyone for the advice.
