Audigy Compatibilty Issues.


I built my computer about a year ago. I've an nforce4 A8N SLI Deluxe mobo and upon building it I had a bunch of compatibility issues with some stuff. The computer techs at the store had to unplug one of my optical drives (an old cd-reader) and my Creative Audigy card stopped working (CTLTray error, says to reinstall soundcard.) This was awhile ago and have been using onboard sound since but I just got new speakers and it just sounds like junk to what the Audigy can produce.

Any help/links would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks again.

  1. I'm not sure I understand your question. Are you looking to fix the Audigy issue or upgrade to another card?
  2. Ah, sorry.

    I was looking for a fix to my current issue (if there is one) so I didnt have to buy a new soundcard (going to invest in silencing my p.c.)

  3. Okeydoke. Have you already tried completely disabling onboard sound in the bios and removing the onboard sound's drivers? Moving the Audigy to a different PCI slot and installing the latest Creative drivers ( ) OR Kx Project Drivers ( )
  4. I've tried putting it in a bunch of PCI slots, and each time i boot up I get two boxes that open (CTLTray and something else) that say the soundcard was not properly installed....

    Does this mean that it know it's there or is it just fried? Trying to update the creative drivers tells me that they cannot find any creative audigy on my system.
  5. Hey guys, I got it to work (it was essentially a little bit of everything), changed pci-slots, double checked it in another computer, screwed with bios and found some obscure audigy driver.

    Thanks for all the help!
  6. That's awesome. You said obscure Audigy driver. Kx?
