%$@#@&^&* Sound Card !

Greetings All,

When my system got fried by my Anti-Virus trying to quarentine a Trojan.. my old Soundblaster Audio Card became collaterial damage.

So I cracked open the old vault and bought a new one.

Creative Labs Sound Blaster X-FI Audio. Card sounds great.. only one problem... My MIC is not picking up my voice. The MIC works and yes it's plugged into the correct jack port.

With most SB cards you control the LINE-IN port through the master volume control. Simple check box turns the mic on or off.

I can find no such control panel and the doc's for the audio card make no mention of activating the MIC.

Anyone have any ideas ?

LOL, Spawn. Wash your ears. Smile

I just read the readme file on the Ghost Recon disc. There are some repairable issues with Creative Labs Sound Blaster cards.

Apart from that, I must admit my knowledge is limited.

Hmmm

In TS, have you changed the settings to use that card???

I think you also have to go to sound controll.

I had some issues with my card, but cant remember

I generally limit my audio configuration experience to FreeBSDs mixer.

On a card like that, you should get a control panel of sorts with the drivers default install options, or a hackish replacement of Windows own kit. Worst comes to worst, it *should* respect changes to the sound system via the Windows Control Panel.

Okay I found the Control Panel... they just hid the CP in another spot and then the MIC screen was different also...

I guess new SC so we need a new CP style... what ever...

I managed to turn the MIC back on... so now I just have to test it. Then I can game again.

I have a Creative Labs Sound Blaster X-Fi Elite Pro sound card and I had this problem.

It's called "Volume Panel" and should list the SB X-Fi Audio [EC00].

In TS there is an option for the sound drivers to use in the program, should say SB X-Fi Audio [EC00].

If it still doesn't work (mine refused to) grab the drivers disc and reinstall the whole thing using the Repair option.

When my mic simply wouldn't work I did this and it fixed the issue.

Well finally I can talk on TS again.

I tried everything I know... but it just would not work... the MIC worked cause I tested it on the kids machine.... I used the sound Wizard from windows and it showed me that my MIC was working and infact picking up my voice... but still it would not work.

Then I started thinking about getting a heavy hammer and pounding the sound card into unrecgonizable peices... and you know what... didnt that damn MIC start working right away.

I swear I never touched a thing... I just thought about computer homicide and click it started working... perhaps they should add that tool to the help file.
