    Hi arclight1217,thanks for your response! Installing this driver on the non-internet-connected computer made Install Wizard start working but then error message under the heading of Install Shield occurred. It said "an error occurred while downloading the file http://downloads.drivershq.com/DriverDet.... What would you like to do?" Any thoughts on whats happening?

DriverDetective is a driver update service that requires an active connection to the internet. Trying to install the DriverDetective software on a PC not connected to the internet is a lost cause. You need to download and install the actual driver for the soundcard.

A word of caution, it has been my experience these driver update services do not do a very good job at identifying the correct verrsion of installed hardware. Quite often the drivers that are recommended are not even in the correct language.

It is a good policy to get driver files ONLY from the manufacturer.

You should be able to find the driver for your model of SBL5.1 here:

Hope this helps - good luck!

I'M NOT SURE I UNDERSTAND HOW YOU WERE TRYING TO DOWNLOAD THE DRIVER IF YOU WEREN'T CONNECTED TO THE INTERNET? EVEN IF THE GAMING COMPUTER ISN'T HOOKED UP TO THE INTERNET, YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO IMPUT ANY DATA FROM A JUMP DRIVE, IF YOU DOWNLOADED IT FROM THE INTERNET. WITHOUT AN INTERNET CONNECTION YOU NEED TO USE ANOTHER COMPUTER TO DOWNLOAD THIS DRIVER, THEN INSTALL IT ON YOUR GAMING MACHINE. OK? DOES THIS HELP?

    IT SEEMS THAT THE DOWNLOAD FAILED SOMEHOW AND THAT IS WHY THE ERROR POPPED UP. I WOULD ATTEMPT TO DOWNLOAD THE FILE AGAIN AND MAYBE USE A MIRROR SITE IF IT GIVES YOU A CHOICE AND SEE IF YOU CAN GET A CLEAN FILE. THERE HAS GOT TO BE AN ERROR IN THE DOWNLOAD. I WOULD DELETE THAT FILE AND TRY THIS FIRST. KEEP IN TOUCH! IT'S ALITTLE AFTER MIDNIGHT RIGHT NOW, BUT I'LL BE BACK ONLINE TOMORROW AND WILL CHECK IN. JUST REPLY AND WE WILL CONTINUE TO SOLVE THIS! GOOD LUCK.

No sound output


Try looking for new hardware in configuration, maybe windows will find the right drivers. Otherwize try (free) driverbooster from IObit; I like this program a lot.
If this doesn't help I think your computer was originally a XP machine and there are no new drivers for your soundcard. Then you can buy an usb soundcard as a last resort.

Gateway nv54 no soundcard


Hello you can download the driver here at gateway:

http://support.gateway.com/product/default.aspx?modelid=2376

First make sure it`s the right model.

But first select your windows system 32 or 64 bit system.

Download the sound driver and unzip the file before you install.

Reboot after the install is done.

Install the other drivers if any missing.

Hope this will help you.

Sound stills and video breaks


I can not find a website that supports this product but you can buy it new for $11.00 now. I would suggest that you purchase a new Vista compatable PCI soundcard like soundblaster, for example. They are even available at walmart but you might find a really good deal on one on the internet  from like newegg.com.  I am guessing that their is no VISTA driver for this old soundcard and that might be why all the trouble that you are having .   As far as speeding up your computer, Add RAM is the commmon answer but do a search on turning off services on VISTA. That wil help a lot they say.

Hi i lost my original cd with drivers for creative how can i get


Hello marazas785,

Simply go to this address:

http://www.soundblaster.com/language.asp?sDestUrl=/support/downloads

Choose the country etc etc etc, and then search the downloads.

If for some reason you cannot find the drivers, you can also go to google and type in the driver name... But you should be able to get them off the above soundblaster site.

Hope that helps you, so please leave a rating so I know if it has.

Good luck
