This is my first post, and I'm not a tech...please disregard my obvious shortcomings in explaining myself as succinctly as the rest of this group. I had a Gigabyte 7VRXP board until is APPARENTLY broke down (I haven't tested it yet) and got it replaced with a KM400-M2. I'm told through my sister's friend that it's much crappier. Anyways, I've got an empty slot at the back of my computer where I swear I had a soundcard, specifically a Creative Soundblaster Live 24-bit card. I was told by my sister's friend that it might not have been replaced due the size of the current motherboard. The tech I brought my computer to swears she wouldn't have forgotten to put it back it if I had one. I asked for the "broken" motherboard back, which she still has, and she mentioned that it says "Creative" on the board. Now, I'm not a tech, but the Gigabyte board does have a Creative chipset, if I'm interpreting the info in the link correctly. http://www.soundblaster.com/products/live24bit/gallery.asp I have the Creative software under my Programs folder, but clicking on it gives a popup saying the hardware and/or drivers are missing/unavailable, or something to that effect. I have to go pick up my old motherboard on Monday, and I'm worried about arguing with her about my missing soundcard...it's hard to fight fire with fire when I don't have the necessary background info to debate with. Any help you can give me would be greatly, greatly appreciated...I'm so up to my ears with anxiousness. I'd be willing to go the way of filing a complaint to the BBB if I actually have a case (if you all say I do). Thanks for listening....sorry for the length.
