1)Load up control panel
2) Access your system icon
3) Get into the Hardware Manager In that hardware manager click scan for hardware changes. The sound and audio section should expand with a yellow question mark. Click on the icon and choose �Update Driver�.

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.

Did you try the AutoUpdate? It will automatically detect what driver you need.

Problem with Windows XP recognizing Creative Sound Card


It sounds like a software problem. Though you did the right thing by entering the bios & disabling the onboard sound. That should have been enough. Did you uninstall the old intergrated sound drivers before adding the 24bit card? Just about all the drivers & upgrades for your 4600 through Dell is Creative software & thats why your having a tough time. I would put everything back to how it was. Re-enable the intergrated sound & reboot! Run system restore & check that every thing is running right!! Look at this dell web site for the sound drivers you have at this link:
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&ServiceTag=&SystemID=DIM_P4_4600&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=
If you must, install a upgrade for your intergrated sound. Just so you can uninstall it after a reboot. Re disable the sound in the bios. Do not install your new card yet. While back in windows device manager you should be missing a PCI device. Shut down install the new sound card. Hopefully windows will want the drivers & all runs fine. If still no it could be a bad card (i know what your thinking but it's possible). The only thing left is the regestry is using the wrong PCI device.
