sound blaster audigy se driver issue

Bought a new sound card recently, the sound blaster audigy sb0570 and with windows 7 none of the tools (EAX, graphic equalizer..ect) will install. I get blue screen 0x131 whenever it gets to the part where it installs the tools. I googled this error code and nothing came up. I downloaded the latest driver (only) from creative labs and it installed fine and im using the sound card now. Whenever I click on the icons for EAX and graphic equalizers I get an error saying audio device supported by this application is not detected. Whats going on and how do I fix this? Usually vista drivers will work with this card but cant install them without the blue screen. If there's anything stupidly wrong with this post its because I'm re-posting this thread at almost 2am. Here is my pc specs if it matters at all to the problem (?compatibility?)

Motherboard - ECS a780gm-a (with most recent bios update)

Hi, I bought an audigy se today, and I am having this same problem.

audio device supported by this application is not detected.

I have downloaded all the latest drivers. I am trying to flag this up again because I haven't found any solutions anywhere. I have windows 7 64 bit
Someone please help me and snipester89, I would be very grateful.

I had that problem too when I upgraded to Win 7 x64. As I tried everything I just took it out and started using onboard. But you could try searching Google for the "Daniel_K" drivers. He's made all the stuff work under Vista.

Here is a video showing you the error I am recieving. I believe it is the same as snipester89.
Thanks for any help

Seems like there is a driver - hardware mismatch. I mean youmight have downloaded the wrong driver or you have got a different card that you think you have got ;)  Or something went perhaps terribly wrong during the installation, such as you still had another card installed while installing this one. Mu suggestions are:

1. Disable onboard audio in BIOS
2. Uninstall all audio drivers you have
3. Reboot
4. If you are 100% confident your sound card is Audigy SE
install this driver:

Hope it helps..
