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.

I dont find a download link :(


I don't think there are any drivers for speakers. Is your soundcard working fine? You should only have to plug your speakers to your soundcard and it should send the signal to them.

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.

My hp computer will not play my logitech 5.1 speakers right.


Hi mate,

You have to download the latest driver for your soundcard for it to have the 5.1 support. For instance, I had to downloadthe RealTek driver pack and install it, then double click the redRealtek icon in the bottom right hand corner of my screen, and go toadvanced settings and set the preferences for each speaker and each ofthe 3 input ports on my computers sound card.

If you have a Realtek card then, you want the Realtek High Definition Audio Driver R2.11, you can find it here:
http://rapidshare.com/files/173933659/WDM_R211.zip

and the Vista one is here:
http://rapidshare.com/files/173930788/Vista_R211.zip

That's for my setup though, if you have a Soundblaster card, it'll be the newest Creative driver you want..
Figureout which one you have from your device manager in the system part ofthe control panel and then google search for the card brand followed bythe word 'driver', and check the download page to make sure it supportsyour card's model number.

Good luck

MY SOUND CARD


Hi, you should have the driver CD for soundcard as it is shipped with the new sound card - if not you must download the driver for the soundcard not for the Chipset of the computer. Look at the soundcard - normal the driver manufacturer and model is shown on the "biggest" chip fixed on the soundcard - donwload the driver as shown on the chip of the soundcard from the manufacturer and install. (ensure you select driver for you operating system)

Hope this help.

My PC lost its original Windows


Yes you can get the sound driver from the internet. Acer's website has a driver download section. You just need to put in the model # and download the PDF. That should have a link.
