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 not install Creative Sound Blaster Live! (CT4830) 5.12.01.383 in windows 7


The CT4830 is a pretty old sound card (end-of-life in the early 2000s), and Creative no longer offers any updated drivers for it. If the XP drivers won't work with Windows 7, your only option is to purchase a new card that will.

Sound is nt coming from speakers?


Do you have two sound cards in your computer now or have you removed or disabled the old sond card?

FYI, looks like in the media player you havent selected the right sound output.

Try this,
1. In Windows Media Payer, Menu bar-> Tools -> Plug-ins -> Options.

2. Go to Device tab and click on Speakers ad the click Proprties button below.

3. Click Advanced

4. Select your new hadrware.(Creative Aspire 5.1)

5. Click Set as default.

6. Click OK, OK OK...

Then restart Windos media player and try again.

-------------
Another thought, make sure you have pluged the jacks right and you speakers are working right.

Good Luck!!!
