im not sure what you are referring to
click start control panel hardware and sound manage audio devices playback you should see your speakers right click select enable or you might have to configure them this option will be at the bottom of the playback list also
right click on the speaker select properties you should see a few tabs general levels enhancement and advanced you might find you need to select a different option possibly stereo or dvd or studio quality

Is it just a replacement of a defective one? If it is, then, you still have the same operating system in it. Put your PC on, and left click, Setting, Control Panel, Systems, Hardware, and finally the Device Manager. You will now see the installed devices/hardware in
your PC. Right click over the sound, audio devices,
and view the status and property of this item. You
will be prompted on what to do next. If you don't get
results, your option is to reinstall the software driver.
If you have the CD for sound/audio software driver,
insert the disc and install the driver. If this is not
available, you can connect to the internet Just type at the search engine blank (Free download for sound/audio software driver) and click over it. Then, follow the instruction for you to get the free download.
the sound/audio software driver download

If it were me, I would find out if 'ALL' of the drivers are available for XP. If they are, I would then downgrade to XP. I would also let Creative know about the performance problem. They may be able to fix it.

Remove the card and boot system. Shut down the system and reinstall the card. Your operating system should see it. If it does not then post again and I will help more.

Which windows version? Model number of you sound card?

Creative Labs... | Answered on Feb 27, 2009

This delay you are experiencing is called latency. All equipment or signal processing unit introduces some latency even if extremely low.
Computer tends to be a lot worse than outboard gear.

Look for Asio4All, this little driver will help you improve your audio input latency. And remember, the smaller the buffer size the lower latency you get.
