HP XW6000 And Windows 7

Has anybody had a problem with getting a sound card to work on the XW6000 running Windows 7?

 

I have tried an Audigy SE with the Win 7 driver from Creative and kept getting the message that the driver could not be installed.

I also tried a Diamond XS771DDL with the same resulting error message.

 

I have tried changing the IRQ on the sound card with no success.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

If the driver was downloaded did you unblock the driver? If you have a machine with widows firewall on and some third party firewalls the downloaded file will be blocked to unblock the download. Right click the download and select the  properties on the window that comes up select the unblock button towards the bottom and then the Apply button at the bottom right and close the page and then try executing the driver file.

Good suggestion.  However, I have the Windows firewall turned off on all my PC's since I have a hardware firewall installed on my network.
