Question about Creative Labs Sound Blaster Live! 5.1 Sound Card

1 Answer

Playing MP3's I removed everything related to Live 5.1 then reinstalled using the CD for thesound card then Updated the driver for it on my XP pro system. Also downloaded and installed Creative Playcenter 2, . Most MP3's stored on my system play with a clicking sound that overcomes the music sound, but a few play OK. Other sounds are normal. Can anyone help? Thanks, Jerry

Hi Jerry,

Sound Blaster is notorious for this problem, I have experienced it myself. Uninstall everything again, sorry it's a must, this time, do not use the cd for the initial driver install, download the latest driver first to your hard drive, uncompress the zip file to a folder on your desktop. Once you have the updated driver info ready, then install the hardware and use the new driver when asked by windows to install it, this should correct the problem. Also, make sure the default sound card is sound blaster using the control panel, sounds and audio devices, audio tab.

Let me know how it works out for you.

Can't get wireless card to install


This is strange, and it sounds like you've done everything right, but.....have you tried a reverse install?

Remove the card, un-install all the drivers and remove the device from the device manager if the uninstall doesn't do it.

Shut the machine down (turn it off)

Install the Linksys card in your available PCI slot.

Start the machine back up. When the Found New Hardware message pops up, follow the prompts from there instead. Your PC may be able to load drivers it already has. If not and if it asks for a disk, then use the CD you got with the card.

All of this assumes the card is ok to use with XP

I have a nVIDIA RIVA tnt model 64 pro.I have a problem with opengl support.Please tell me how to solve this problem,and where can I download?Tank you and I hope you have answer for this question.


Well... seems like nVidia stopped supporting this card model (together with others). You can try OpenGL support for the card itself booting a Linux Live CD like Slax (v.6). Linux have native support for OpenGL and your card maybe capable of running under it. But problems arise when you are using Windows XP, because the manufacturer has not updated the drivers.You may try to unstall a newer card model, with full XP support.

Blue Screen error


Try to boot the PC without the XP Home CD in the CD drive, and keep pressing the F8 key until it comes up with a boot menu that includes a Safe Mode option.

If you had the XP Pro CD I'd suggest doing a recovery, but XP Home doesn't have that option I don't think.

You may have to try a few times until the boot menu appears. Don't hold the F8 key down - keep pressing it!

When you get into Safe Mode, right click on My Computer and choose Properties. Then go to Hardware tab (i think - not in winXP right now) and choose device manager. Just remove the Video Card from the list altogether, and then restart. Should force it to use generic video card drivers.

then check your video card model and look for the updated driver
