HI GUYS,

I haven't given up yet!  I am not able to find how to change the acpi hal to std pc hal both in bios or device manager?  i am convinced that the only way for this audigy Rx to work will be to set a dedicated IRQ.  Although seems like they are all already in use by something so not sure when i'm able to which one to delete or share with rather than the 4 on IRQ 16. 

Also, since my last post I did check the on board sound like i said i would and it was disabled already, so for laughs i made it hd audio and moved my speaker input to the mother board audio out and everything worked fine so i know it can play.  actually, did not sound too bad but i hate to conceed this problem.  i have learned a lot dealing with this issue from you experts.  i don't have too much time this week to experiment but if there is any further advise i am ready will and able to proceed.  btw, if there is a sound board that is more friendly to use i am open to suggestion.
In the past the sound blasters have always been a no brainer, my i was just lucky then?

thank you, H-D

SHANE,
i don't think i did that!  not sure how to do it?  i've looked through many tabs before but never recognized anything related to the onboard sound.

any ideas what i might look for and where i might find this?

in my manual under bios setup utility ---> advanced  ------>  onchip audio select [hd audio]  choices disabled, or hd audio; i will check this item now!

shane,

it was on yes and i switched to no made no difference still not able to toggle the choice to change the IRQ in device manager.  I guess i'll put it back to yes since this was the suggestion you made to allow the manipulation of the IRQ; either way it doesn't allow me to unselect the check mark.  I have tried to uninstall and reintall this software several times, now it recognizes there is a sb sound card and confirms the correct drive is installed and i get nothing even during the windows greeting after reboot.

btw, i have attached a screen shot of my system info and it seems i have the latest version of bios.

from the box for the mother board i have this information for you:

a8v-x-eayz

p/n  90-m9logk-goeayz

s/n  73moac91631

i cannot verify a mfg. date.

if you suggest a better sound card that will work with my system i will buy it.  i am using the pci-e slot for this sb and only have 2 pci-e slots and have tried both of them same results.  i will be happy to try any further remedies you may think of.

1 more thing i have thought of, this sytsem doesn't allow me to install dotnetfx 1.1; not sure if that would contribute to this issue, just thought you should know.

thank again!

HI SHANE,

Welcome back.  My motherboard is an Asus a8v-x, i recently assembled this machine although i have been buying parts for it for about 5 years so its new to me with about 5 yo parts except the sound card which i just bought in Aug Audigy Rx.  In July I bought the wrong board Audigy Fx.  So, i was thinking that the IRQ could be the problem but i wasn't able to edit it.  I will go into the bios and see if plug n play is no or yes and switch it if necessary to allow the adjustment.  Based on the IRQ list i provided with this thread is there a particular address you would choose?  I am happy with all the hellp i have been getting and learning as i go.  This site is an awesome resource.  Thank you!

Regards,
H-D

Hello Guys,

Jraju:  i have attached a screen shot of my sound settings that you keep refering to, there is no choice to disable 'digital'?

Boggin:  Before your latest suggestion I did try a complete uninstall to the best of my ability and knowledge and the reinstall did hang up at 80% audio files then requesting if i want to proceed without ms authentication I said yes then got a blue screen dump; I simply did a hard reboot with the boot button and then i tried the install again from 0% same query at 80% I said yes and then it finished 100% download complete-finish.  i checked the dxdiag and it still reported dev 0008 indicating the wrong hardware?  and now my sound won't even play during startup.  I didn't have the proper routine as you suggested and the creative link indicates; I will try to do this complete removal at some point.  I will get to it just don't have enough time at the moment to tackle it since i am still able to use this computer without sound.

I am open to any and all thoughts going forward and appreciated both of your time and thoughts!

Regards,
H-D

Hello Boggin,

I don't know what dev 0008 means or how you interpret it, but i think this is important.  When i first put this tower together i did install a new Audigy Fx (4)  sb1570.  afterwards when it didn't work i called creative and they told me it was the wrong board for my system and to but the Audigy Rx (5)  sb1550.  Thisis the hardware i currently have installed in my tower.  I thought i uninstalled all the previous files for the Audigy Fx but not sure since the windows remove programs wouldn't do it for me and creative didn't have an uninstall file for this purpose, there maybe still an undesireable file left over from the first installation.  BTW, my os is win xp pro 64bit sp2.  So now since you've determined that the dxdiag has reported this Audigy Fx (file/driver?)  is it possible for me to remove it and set things straight?

Thank you,
H-D

Hello Boggin,

i attached a screen shot of the sound tab, i don't know if anything here is unusual or bad?

Pleae advise!

Hello Jraju,

BY following this path the final advanced option only allows for bass and treble adjustment, nothing for digital only.   At this point as Samson suggested wait and see if Shane joins and has some insight about how to manually manipulate the IRQ 16 being shared.  I appreciate both yours and Samson's input so far.

Regards,

SAMSAN,

YES IT IS THE DEFAULT DEVICE FOR SOUND PLAYBACK, SOUND RECORDING, AND MIDI MUSIC.  CURRENTLY IT WON'T EVEN CHIME ON REBOOT WINDOWS OPENING?  CHECK ATTACHMENT SHOWING IRQ RESOURCES FYI?

THANK YOU

HEY GUYS THANKS FOR YOUR INPUT.

JRAJU:  THIS HAPPENS ON ALL METHODS THAT REQUIRE SOUND OUTPUT.  I DID UPDATE ADOBE FLASK PLAYER FROM THEIR SITE BUT DIDN'T SEE AN OPTION TO UNINSTALL MY PREVIOUS VERSION?  I HAVEN'T TRIED THIS OUT YET.

SAMSON:  I TRIED TO UPDATE THE DRIVER FOR THE SOUND CARD BUT THE EXISTING DRIVER IS THE MOST SUITABLE AVAILABLE ACCORDING TO THE INTERNET SEARCH FOR A BETTER DRIVER.  NOT ABLE TO DISABLE OR REMOVE ANY OF THE OTHER SOUND DEVICES FROM DEVICE MANAGER AND NOT SURE WHICH ONE IS THE ORIGINAL SYSTEM SOUND DEVICE, PLEASE ADVISE AND REFER TO ATTACHED SCREEN SHOT OF MY SOUND DEVICES.

I APPRECIATE ALL INPUT!

HELLO ALL!

I HAVE INSTALLED A CREATIVE TECHNOLOGIES SOUND BLASTER AUDIGY RX SB1550 IN MY TOWER WITH WIN XP PRO 64 BIT OS.  IT INSTALLED FINE AND THE CREATIVE LINK IS ABLE TO DETECT AND RECOMMEND UPDATE FOR DRIVERS ETC.  AND DEVICE MANAGER SAYS EVERYTHING IS INSTALLED AND WORKING FINE.  THE PROBLEM IS WHETHER I PLAY AN AUDIO CD, STREAM A RADIO STATION, OR OPEN YOU TUBE CONTENT THE SOUND CARD WILL PRODUCE SOUND FOR LESS THAN 2 MINUTES AND THEN TOTAL SILENCE.  I HAVE TRIED THIS WITH MY HEADPHONES AS WELL SAME RESULTS.  AFTER THE SOUND STOPS I CHECK DEVICE MANAGER, AND TASK MANAGER AND THE PROGRAMS ARE STILL RUNNING AND WORKING PROPERLY.  WHEN I REBOOT I GET THE WELCOME SOUND FOR WINDOWS OPENING AND WHEN I GO TO LISTEN TO SOME SOUND PRODUCING FORMAT SAME THING ONLY FOR ABOUT 2 MINUTES.  I CHECKED THE RESOURCES AND THERE ARE NO CONFLICTS ANNOUNCED HOWEVER I NOTICED THE IRQ IS SHARED WITH 4 OTHER DEVICES ON THE PCI BUS, IRQ 16.  NOTE THIS CARD IS IN A PCI-E SLOT AND I'VE TRIED CHANGING THE SLOT AS WELL AND REINSTALLING THE CREATIVE SOFTWARE AND DRIVERS ALWAYS END UP AT THE SAME PLACE.  BTW, WHEN I 1ST EXPERIENCED THIS PROBLEM I THOUGHT IT WAS A HARDWARE ISSUE SO I RETURNED THE ORIGINAL CARD AND TRIED ANOTHER ONE, SAME RESULTS.  I THOUGHT ABOUT MANUALLY SETTING THE IRQ TO SOMETHING ELSE HOWEVER I AM UNABLE TO CLEAR THE 'USE AUTOMATIC SETTINGS' CHECK BOX, TO TRY THIS?  STUMPED!  PLEASE HELP!

THANK YOU,
H-D

HELLO SHANE,

THANKS FOR YOUR RESPONSE.  I DID RUN YOUR REPAIR.EXE IN THE SAFE MODE AND IT DID ITS THING, I GUESS OK.  I THEN TRIED TO INSTALL THAT NEW SOFTWARE PROGRAM 'CSCAPE' PLC PROGRAM AFTER RETURNING TO NORMAL DESKTOP FROM A RESTART AND I GOT THE SAME ERRORS I WAS GETTING BEFORE THE REPAIR.  IE:  ERROR 1719,  AND ERROR 1722,  THESE BOTH SEEM TO APPEAR AFTER THE PROGRAM BEGINS TO INSTALL AND ARRIVES AT WIN 2005 REDISTRIBUTABLE C++.  THESE ERRORS APPEAR WHEN ITS TRYING TO PROCEED WITH THIS PART OF THE INSTALL I ASSUME AND NOT JUST COINCIDENCE SINCE I'VE TRIED THIS MORE THAN ONCE WITH THE SAME INSTANCE IN THE INSTALL PROGRESS.  ANY FURTHER THOUGHTS?

THANK YOU,
H-D
