I ordered two sounds cards about a month ago and they were both OEM so I got no manual/box. These are the first sound cards I've ever gotten and I really want to install it now (been extremely busy recently, thus, the 1 month time from when I got it and this post.) So, what I do is I turn off the PSU and plug the card into the slot (that's it.) Then I boot my pc up and it doesn't even detect the card! I'm trying to run a creative card on this computer and it just isn't working.
Is there something I have to do before hte card drivers detect that a card is installed? Do I need to uninstall motherboard sound drivers...? Do I have to connect some cable? I've looked online for guides but it seems that it SHOULD be plug and play. I apologize if this is extremely basic, I could really use help though.
This is the model name of the card. (Somewhere below in that line of text.)
//This is the card name. Creative Sound Blaster SB0610VP 7.1 Channels PCI Interface Audigy 4 SE Sound Card - OEM

Thank you very much,
