On Creative website there are no drivers for 5.1 on Vista.

According to Crative, the 5.1 have reached the end of its service life and is not Vista compatible.

Some private uiser had found his own solution in alternative to creative deciosion not to make SB 5.1 Vista compatible.

Follow the instructions on this website, as they seem to be the only way to have SB 5.1 working on Vista.

SOURCE: Does soundblaster ct4870 have audio drivers for vista?

I just checked Creative's web site. This card is no longer officially supported by them, and has not official Vista support.
While I found several sites promising drivers, I would be wary of messing with this for fear of turning 1 problem into 2.
IF Gateway has a driver for your specific model, that would probably be OK to use (if it supports Vista), but otherwise I would replace the card.
If you're not sure about model # just post a serial # and I can look it up from there.

My computer has no sound becouse i have changed my operating system(vista to xp)how can i slove this problem?


Hi,
You would have to find and install the sound drivers for your sound card, that compatible with windows xp.
If you are using an assemble PC , try looking for drivers on the motherboard manufacturer website.
If you are using a company fitted machine , look on the vendor website
If its a add on sound card , like creative, soundblaster or realtech, look for the on drivers on there specific websites.


Thanks

Soundblaster Live! 5.1 SB0100 into Vista


Windows VIsta should have no trouble finding your Soundblaster LIve card. If it doesn't work just pull it back out, no harm done.
You should not have any trouble.
