  1. Hi, i got a creative blaster audigy SE soundcard. when i fit it into a PCI slot, screwed it in place, restarted my computer, it did not detect any new hardware installed. i even tried using the cd that was provided to detect and soundcard but nothing seemed to work. i've even gone to add new hardware in the control panel but still no luck... any advice? thanks.

    make sure the card is seated in the slot, or try a different pci slot. If that doesn't work I would guess the card is bad. If you had another computer you could try it there

    If it is new, I would take it back and get another one, could be bad from the factory
