I have recently upgraded MOBO, CPU, SSD, and optical drive details below.
My issue is that the Creative Soundblaster XFI card isnt recognised. I have tried:
1: all 3 slots with 2 different sound cards.
2: disabling sound card in device manager & bios (device manager shows the yellow mark and describes it as multimedia controller)
3: a creative auto hard ware search - doesnt find any creative hardware
4: downloading manual software - doesnt allow me to complete install of software as no device found
5: the auto search in windows when install software shows unable to install software
6: cant see the creative card in control panel/sounds
Any help to resolve this would be very much appreciated.
