Check first audio properties, in control panel.

On windows the mic is disabled by default, you need to manually enable audio in, either from control panel, or from audio card mixer.

SOURCE: I need driver sound card Creative Blaster Live!

I found this information, copied it from the Vista Forums, but the post was copied from Creative's site .... so its 3rd hand information, at best!
=========================
(from the Creative forums - I just copied/pasted - jh)

For those of you with live 5.1 problems, here you go!! Worked for me!

From the post @ http://neosmart.net/blog/archives/104:

Creative Sound Blaster Live! Series
This applies to all Live! products, including OEM Dell, Gateway, HP, etc. editions, 24-bit, 5.1, and the rest. Vista 5308 may or may not find drivers on Windows Update, but even if it does, they will not support Digital Audio.

1. Grab the ngoHQ modded drivers from

http://www.ngohq.com/home.php?page=Files&a...e&dwn_id=20

2. Run the installer in XP compatibility mode.
3. Restart your computer.
4. In the audio properties in the Control Panel, to enable digital audio go to the Other tab and check digital output.
5. Play with the Format tab to get the audio quality to your liking.
6. You may need to restart to ensure that digital audio works after changing that option.




I'm not 100% sure if creative is going to be upset that I posted this, but since they have no plans to support the card in Vista, I can't see a big problem with it.

BTW, I tried the KX driver and I couldn't get it to work, so for anyone with that problem this should be your solution.

I have a intel d845gvad2 motherboard..... and os:windows xp professional sp3 and i use sigmatel ac 97 audio driver.... but the sound output is not clear it is scratchy ... i tried installing realktek...


The Desktop Board D845GVAD2 offers integrated audio that uses a portion of the Intel® 82801DB I/O Controller Hub 4 (ICH4) with a SigmaTel* STAC9750/STAC9766 audio codec to create the basic audio subsystem.
It has The AC'97 (Audio Codec 1997) specification defines a high-quality audio architecture that advances the migration to digital audio, while maintaining support for analog interconnects for backward compatibility.
So uninstall your current driver otherwise your system will continue to undergo hardware failure & reboot continuously.
If your sound is still not good there's nothing to do except to install a sound card in your PCI slot & get better sound.

Creative Audigy 2 (WDM) card cuts out


Plug in ONLY the regular wired speakers and ONLY to the green port on the back.

Make sure they are powered up and the volume is about half way.

Ok now you need to call up ether the sound card application or preferably the windows volume control from the bottom toolbar.

Click Open Volume Control.

A box with sliders in should appear. make sure that volume control, wave, sw synth, aux, cd player, line in
are all about half way and that none of them have ticks in the box at the bottom.

If any of those are missing click options then properties from the top left and put a tick besides any that were missing (nothing else)
Now close the slider box.

Put a normal music cd in your cd/dvd player on the computer and set it to play with windows media player.
You should now have sound out of the speakers.

Double check that EVERYTHING is ok.
If there is still no sound check the control panle for any hardware issues and rectify those with the correct drivers
