Other devices > Unknown device.
I tried various things, installing the latest drivers, changing the PCI slot, but nothing worked. So I thought 'stuff it' and not have a 5m ethernet cable trailing across the middle of my room.
This morning, the soundcard I ordered arrived. Its a soundblaster X-Fi. I followed the instructions, removing the on-board sound drivers, shutting down and inserting the card. Turn on, and windows has detected new hardware. Following the instructions, I cancel this and try to run the install CD. Unfortunately, the CD drive isn't showing in my computer.
I shut down, wiggle the IDE cable around, and boot up, and it works. Install everything from the CD, and reboot when it asks. But when I rebooted, I still got the 'windows has detected new hardware' message. I can see all the drivers installed, but going into device manager, there in other devices is:
Other devices > Audio Device on High Definition Audio Bus
I tried right clicking and searching for drivers, but it can't find anything. Strangely, the belkin had dissapeared completely from the list.
So, is it just a duff mobo, or do I need to turn something on in the BIOS, or something? Help!
