My computer system appears to be closing down for some reason. First loss of sound, tried to download driver from Creative and when I boot up message says no sound card present re-install sound card (which is still present). This has been followed by CD/CD-ROM drives and removable hard drive drive all disappearing from system. On checking device manager all drivers are missing and Plug and Play Device Enumerator driver missing code 39 driver maybe corrupted or missing. Creative SB Audigy no driver. All have yellow labels with ! mark against them in device manager. System restore will not rectify situation. Any Ideas please???
Recovered CD/CD-ROM drives and Plug and Play Device Enumerator driver and Creative SB Audigy driver but when I boot up message says no sound card present re-install sound card (which is still present.
Is this a windows plug and play generated driver which is missing? Do I need to physically remove the sound card and re-install or is there an easier way to replace driver. i.e. some registry value needs altering?
Checked Device Manager all devices under Sound, Video and Game Controller working ok including Sound Blaster. However Multimedia Audio Controller has a yellow exclamation mark against it and device manager shows no driver and manufacturer unknown. I dont know if this is something I have installed whilst finding sound card drivers or if it was on original system?
I had a similar problem Firstly go into sounds and audio devices, what is the default device? If it is not audigy then you need to reinstall. Uninstall, go to program files and delete the creative folder. Do a search and delete all creative soundcard files from your system. Reinstall. Enjoy.
