You are going to need a external sound card.
the creative 5.1 speakers are design for dekstop computer with upgraded sound card.
the laptop or any laptop only produce mono or stereo at best. The building sound card are not design for high quality sound.

Win 7 drivers for creative sbs a235 speaker


creative a 235 doesnot require any computer driver. Just plug into headphone jack and enjoy. If your headphone is working in the same jack and your speakers must also work. Use a working headphone to check the problem is with laptop or speakers.

My sound card driver has been lost. Creative SBS 230 sound driver i need.


Sound drivers are for the computer motherboard, you will not be able to find driver with SBS 230, as this is the model of the creative speakers you are using.\

If you are using a DELL, HP, Gateway or anyother brand of PC. Go to their website, e.g www.hp.com or www.dell.com.

Click on the drivers and softwares download section, type the model number or product number of your PC. You will find model number or product number on a sticker on the PC or the BIOS or the Invoice. Type the model number, the website will give you option to select the operating system, select the operating system you are using then click on Audio Driver, download and Install it.

Regards,
Shrey

I can not find the drivers for Creative SBS 380


Hi lorenzogoode
You don't need drivers for these speakers : it's a plug and play system .
Check your connections , power supply and volume settings .

Creative SBS 2.1 370 Speaker - Volume Remote Controller not worki


Hi Arun!

Try to plug your speakers to an iPod or any MP3 Player to check if there's sound. If there is sound, then try plugging it to the green port at the back of your speakers.

If it doesn't have sounds then you need to buy a new speaker system.

How can I connect my 4.1 creative speakers to HP Pavillion laptop? Is there are adapter that cnverts two wires from speakers to on thet can be pluged into laptop?


Most external computer speakers have an input device that is like your standard headphone jack. Some have a cord built in for this, some don't.
You should be able to plug these speakers into your standard headphone output on your laptop.

Connect Creative 5.1 A500 speaker system to Phillips DVD 3256


moz-screenshot.jpg 2d65f17.jpg
Just buy two connectors(shown above). Its having two holes upside.
1. Connect the connector to one hole of the other.
2. Connect the audio cable to the dvd.
3. Then connect the connectors to the other side of the audio cable.
4. Lastly, connect the three stereo output cables of the Creative speakers to the three holes of the connector simultaneously.
I have tried this at home with my Creative Inspire M5300 speakers and philips dvd. All the five speakers are working.
