Creative Sound Card has to be reinstalled in Windows XP SP

By sab65d ·
I have an HIS 810 Mother Board with on Board Sound.
I have fixed pci Creative 128 bit Sound Card to it.
I have disabled from the Bios in the pheriperal AC97 Sound.

My Problem is that When ever I shut down the windows XP SP2 , altough in the device manager the sound drivers shows working properly it does not work.
I the have to uninstall the sound drivers and reinstall and then restart the PC the Sound works, BUT if once again I sout down and resart the sound does not work , I have to repeate the above process once again and vice versa.
I have even changed the PCI slot and reinstalled Win XP Pro SP2.
Please advise in this matter.

Re: Creative Sound Card has to be reinstalled

I have had the same problem. My solution was to go into the "add and remove" and delete the sound card, by the way it would not be all removed so you will have to go into the registry.
1.Remove sound card from "add and remove".
2.Start > run, type in the box "regedit".
Once open go to "edit > find, and type in the box (find what) "creative". A word of WARNING, please make a BACKUP of your computer before you do anything in the registry, if you do not and you try and delete anything that is NOT related to your sound card you might crash your computer either that or you will have more problems than you have now. After you have typed "creative" in the box the registry will do a search of the sound card (be aware this will take some time to complete), the lists might be of one or it might be many ONLY DELETE the name "creative" and anything that is related to it, once again be careful. When you have done all this and cooled off you can reboot your computer and re-install the sound card. Hope this helps you.
