Question about Creative Labs Sound Blaster Live! 5.1 Sound Card
I need to install driver for soundblaster 5.1 in windows vista
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.

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.
