I have a Soundbalster X-Fi Fatality sound card, when I try to play an MP3 or run a game disk I get "there is no device recognised error message".
Sometimes on reboot everything seems ok and sound work.
Have run Belarc which say "no multimedia device" also tied Device Mgr and multimedia device has a yellow icon beside it.
have been going round in circles for ages now - any help gratefully receieved!

Many thanks...

Thanks Fruit Bat
said drivers were missing.ie

The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)

To reinstall the drivers for this device, click Reinstall Driver.

Searched for drivers using Hardware Update Wizard but came back with nothing. Have already tried the Creative website and downloaded drivers but still not working

Any ideas - thx!
