Today I had a weird message like "Do not mess with pretection ..."
and after that I have "Hardware communication error .." and installation error "Hardware can not be setup properly".

I removed the card and cleaned the connectors, reinstalled drivers, and software, but didn't help.
My "Device managger" see card normally and drivers are properly installed.

I have tried Pulsar on another computer and I have the same symptoms. Looks like my Pulsar is dead.

Been there, know how you feel with this.
I solved it with a recap. It's cheap and worthwhile.
If you can't do it by yourself get the board to an audio technician worth its name, it's something easy for them.

Ripper is correct, look for someone in your area that is competent in testing and repairing electronics.

Recap is easy on this card for people who can solder ;)

Sorry for bothering you, :)
You could just have a little more detailed description of how many capacitors there are and where are they located?

Once out of the pc it will be easily figured.
If you need such advice i recomend you to take it to a technician. Honestly

I will! Thanks :)

I thought to make it easier for him. If you say that it is not complicated, then my help will not even be needed. ;)
