Just installed Windows 8 on my older computer.
Specs are as follows:
ASUS Rampage Formula X48 motherboard
Intel Q2D Extreme CPU
Samsung 830 512GB SSD
With Windows 7 the sound card was recognized as a SoundBlaster/Creative X-FI Fata1ity Pro sound card.
Currently within device manager it is being recognized as an High Definition Audio Device but that's it. When I try to install the Creative drivers that are dated January of 2013 it says that it cannot find the sound card.
Currently there is a lot of hissing and crackling coming through when I do play things with sound.
I have searched high and low to no avail. Hoping someone out there will have a suggestion.
