Have you recently upgraded from a lower version of Windows? If you have, the computer might have been made especially for Windows XP (for example) and certain things aren't compatible with your computer. If you haven't and you bought the computer with Windows 7, either make sure your sound is on, try some additional speakers, or contact the seller. Hope this helps. Get back in touch. Steven :D

I need windows 7 driver for creative sb0220


There are not Creative drivers for the Live 5.1 in Windows 7. This card stopped getting support at the end of Windows XP. However the native drivers in Windows 7 should at least give you audio. If you do not have sound let me know and I will see if I can pull the files you need to get the card to work. Note with some OEM releases of Windows they will remove some of the native drivers to make the size of the install smaller.

I used to have windows vista then i switched to windows 7 then i switched to windows xp dark edition service pack 3 and the sound stopped working on my computer?

You must get a driver from the internet. It is not good to install modified versions of windows. Especially, windows XP is very much problematic. Windows 7 is good if you have 2 GB ram or more.

No sound in Windows 7


Uninstall all the audio drivers and restart the computer. Make sure the audio jack is in the Green audio port.

Let the operating system re-detect the audio and install the drivers for it itself. When its done see if you have any sound.

Post back if this does not work.

Good luck.
