I'm having issues with a sound card. I purchased a very cheap sound card by "Diamond", which I hadn't heard of until a month back. Anyhow, I was up all night the night before and this was my last stop for the day, and I paid no attention to what I bought. The driver for the card itself was not Win 7 compatable but the company provided an update for Win 7 x32 and x64 versions. I managed to install the drivers and I am able to run the application software which allows for configuration of the settings. Windows was still reporting that the card had not been installed so I reinstalled the update and that problem resolved itself. The issue that remains is that when I raise the volume for the Wav bar and the bar which corresponds to the actual volume to equal levels, I'm getting a very noisy feedback sound in headphones or out of speakers. A computer consultant I know said that he thought there were some jumpers on the card that should correspond to cables that were part of the original computer built and built in audio chipset. I think the original chipset may even be better than this cheap thing, but I'm not sure. All I know is that I got the card because the sound in Windows decided to adjust itself so that it wouldn't raise beyond a certain volume, and as a music lover, it annoyed the effer luvin' smit out of me! Please help, the name says it all!
