Not enough resources code 12, pci sound card not working properly.

I have an Auzentech xplosion 7.1 pci sound card that worked fine on previous motherboard (dfi lanparty s939). I upgraded to a new system and can't get it to work. My current motherboard is 970 extreme3 R2.0.  

I have tried updating the driver, deleting the driver and reinstalling it. It shows up in device manager with the yellow flag saying error code 12. If I goto sound devices it does not show up. I tried disabling onboard sound and that did not work. This is a fresh install with windows 7 64bit. 

I have used the troubleshoot guide and it recognizes the problem but cannot fix it. Post of the pic below of this.

I have only a sound card in the PCI slots and an ati 4670 video card in the PCI-E slot. 

Any help would be greatly appreciated, this is very frustrating.

Hello,

 

Thank you for posting your question in Microsoft Community.

 

Error code 12:

This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. If you want to use this device, you will need to disable one of the other devices on this system. (Code 12)

Cause:

This error can occur if two devices that are installed on your computer have been assigned the same I/O ports, the same interrupt, or the same Direct Memory Access channel (either by the BIOS, the operating system, or both). This error message can also appear if the BIOS did not allocate enough resources to the device.

 

I would suggest you to follow the steps provided below and see if it helps.

 

Method 1

Uninstall graphics card driver completely and reinstall.

a. Click on start button.
b. In the search box type devmgmt.msc and then press enter.
c. Select the graphics card device and right click on it.
d. Now select properties.
e. In the properties window, under Driver tab, click on Uninstall button.

f. If you’re sure you want to delete the driver click OK.

 

Note: If you want the driver completely removed from the computer check “Delete the driver software for this device.”


You may also download and install the latest driver for it from manufacturer’s website.

No offense but did you even read the post? It is my sound card that is problem not the video card. I stated that I already uninstalled all the drivers and reloaded. I have only two things plugged in - my video card which I cant disable because there is no onboard video and my sound card. 

Please someone besides a generic template response help!

Thanks

I seem to be having a similar problem. I purchased a new motherboard a GIGABYTE x79 UD3 LGA 2011 motherboard. My PCI soundcard an M-audio DELTA 44 worked perfectly on my ASus motherboard. After changing the motherboard to the GIGABYTE and upgrading my processor my sound card doesnt work. It keeps giving error code 12. i've tried uninstalling the device, uinstalling the driver, removing and re-inserting the card. Nothing works. 

I've also tried windows troubleshooter all that does is tell me the problem i already knew I had.

And I am currently using the most recent driver for my soundcard. So please please please give me a solution I can use.

I just faced with this issue too. I have an M-audio audiophile 2496 soundcard. I was able to resolve this issue by moving my soundcard to another PCIE slot. I also removed the drivers before I changed the slot then I reinstalled them again. Problem solved.
