Driver for soundcard !

    I added it like 2 days back. It was a very old soundcard which was used by my brother for 1 and a half years. Back then it used to work perfectly.

    Thanks in advance.

    If you download a driver and it was the right one. Check in your device manager to make sure their is no conflicts with the hardware. Then you probably need a new sound card.

Buzzing, check the input cables and plug. bad cable or connection, can cause this. if that does not help, reinstall driver for sound card. i hope this helps you. did it just stop working? or you just added it?

    hi do you know if this card was a sound card that came with a dell or other brand? this seems to matter. this link goes for sound blaster live 5.1 digital(DELL) you can try the driver, at worst-a no creative hardware message will come up-and setup can't continue. i had the same problem with a audigy,also a creative sb. it came with a prebiult pc, and i still use it on my favorite pc. so we can try and get yours working too. in the meantime--you can also move the card to another pci slot if you have a empty one. do look and see if there are any conflicts.. Blaster Live! 5.1 Digital (Dell)&subCatName=Live!&CatName=Sound+Blaster
