No Sound, Sound Blaster Audigy 2 card not recognized

    I'm running Vista RC1 and am having a problem getting the sound to work.
    When I first install Vista, I had no sound card in the computer, but did have
    the onboard sound from the motherboard. This apparently installed correctly,
    but I head nothing when I plug in my headphones.

    I next put my Sound Blaster Audigy 2 Platinum card into my computer and
    fired up Vista. I was expecting the little "Windows found new hardware"
    pop-up to show, but it didn't. I've tried using the computer to scan for new
    hardware, but Vista doesn't find my sound card. The Vista drivers from
    Creative fail to find the card also.

    If anyone has a suggestion, I'd be greatly appreciative.

    I am experiencing the same issue. Beta drivers from creative no help.

    I think the issue is the upgrade from Beta 2 to RC1 as I struggled with this
    issue for a week. I finally gave in and did a clean install of RC1 and then
    installed the beta drivers off Creative’s site. After clicking through
    dozens of pop-up warnings I suddenly had sound. (Before a reboot) I did
    disable signed drivers (F8) before installing. It was a pain to reinstall
    but I’m better off with a clean RC1 install and now I have sound and it was
    worth it.

    Hi.
    I had the same kind of problem, upgrade from B2 to RC1, and my Audigy 2
    stopped work.
    Solved by re-installing the Audigy software.
    I'm listening to it now in 4.1 configuration
    Regards

    So I upgraded to build 5728 (64-bit) and once again no sound… This is very
    frustrating to say the least. I tried to reinstall but no luck. I’m
    guessing a clean install and install the Creative drivers. Does anyone have
    any suggestions before I reinstall?
