Can't find driver for sound card

I wiped my computer and my sound card isn't working, so I look at it and it says Sound Blaster Live 5.1 Digital, but when I go to install the driver, I get an error that says my computer can't detect a sound blaster card.

    Same exact problem, ill try going in bios and disabling my onboard sound card (which doesnt work anyways, which is why i plugged in my SB in the first place) i think thats what you meant right? why did i even type this. it said "click here if u have the same problem" so why do i need to type anything if i have the "SAME PROBLEM" anyways, thanks for the help.

    Also having what sounds like the SAME PROBLEM (! :-))) with the SBLive5.1. Will try adjusting from the BIOS screens and post back here if successful!

    From Control Panel --> Sounds and Audio Devices

    It lists the Creative SB Audigy and says no driver is installed for this device so I'm thinking maybe I need a driver??

    The reason I'm trying to get a driver is because I have no volume control and I cannot get any sounds from the system, web sites, cd player or anything and I'm not sure how to fix this as the troubleshooter doesn't cover this problem. I have two Star SP-120C multimedia speakers and I'm thinking they should be plugged into this sound card as there is no other place to put the cord and I assume this is where to plug it in. There is no other slots to plug a device with this type of connector?? Also this is a new computer and I am just getting to know what hardware/software is here.

    Any help will be much appreciated.

I am not able to record sounds with mic.

Cant find sound card

Well, Philips doesn't have driver support for their sound cards, That being said, you are stuck with one driver you can only use, the CD that came with the sound card.

I have a Philips Sonic Edge 5.1 sound card myself.

Common problem, creative have stopped supporting the card and it isn't compatible with service pack 2. There are fixes which people have made though. Try searching for ctcomp.exe it can be a bit of a headache to fix though :(

You may need to go into the bios F2 or Del on boot up and in advanced cmos settings look for onboard sound and select dissable if you are refering to a seperate pci sound card.

I need driver sound card Creative Blaster Live! 5.1 series (WDM) for Windows 7? Thx

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 @

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

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.
