    After updating to Windows 10 2004 Creative Soundblaster Audigy Fx sound card is not working.

    There is no sound my web browsers. I have tested this in both the latest versions of Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Edge. When playing videos, the sound is significantly reduced too. I have uninstalled and then reinstalled the drivers. This did not work. I then installed the additional Create driver provided by Windows Update. This did not work either. How can I fix this?

    Windows 10 updates breaking things is still a big problem!

    :)

  3. Windows 10 and Soundblaster Audigy FX missing 3 of 5 Altec Lansing Speakers

    I do have the Audigy control panel - No matter if I use windows 10 testing or SoundBlaster Audigy testing, it shows that it is checking the Center, Rear and woofer, but there is no sound.

    I have checked the cables. If I take out the woofer cable and "short it" with my finger (only) I can hear the clicking in the woofer. Likewise with the rear speakers.

    I have installed and reinstalled drivers from Creative.

    Creative told me to turn up the volume After updating to Windows 10 2004 Creative Soundblaster Audigy Fx sound card is not working :) DId that and although the stereo speakers work great - can hear anything from the other three/woofer

    Windows 10 is pretty good, but this is driving me nuts.

    Any ideas?

    Is there a card out there to give me 5.1 that would work with Windows 10 and Altec Lansing ada 995 5.1 THX?

    Need basic sound card recommendation - Sound Blaster obsoleted by Windows 10 1803 update

    Are you sure that your computer doesn't have a sound chip on the motherboard? My aged Studio XPS 8100 has that.

    Creative (who bought SoundBlaster long ago) makes the
    Sound Blaster Audigy FX
    for only $40 on their website ... and you could probably pay less than that elsewhere.

    I remember when SoundBlaster owned PC audio. That was long ago. Now the sound chips on motherboards provides all the sound most people need. Today's sound cards are for special purposes like gaming. They do sound amazing.
