Hi There.

I have just installed a Blaster Audigy SE sound card, and disable the onboard sound via the BIOS. Unfortunately the new card will not work except for system sounds. Could it be a conflict because in my device manager there is is category called "Other Devices" which contain something called a PCI Memory Controller (this is shown as a big yellow ? with a exclamation mark in a yellow circle). Can anyone offer any solutions. For info I have include a profile of my PC below.

1: Use this link to download chipset and other drivers to the motherboard.

2: Enable Audio in the BIOS.

3: Go to Control Panel > Sounds and Audio Devices. Check in Audio and in Voice what is Default Device. Set it to be the new card.
