Question about Creative Labs Sound Blaster Live! 5.1 Sound Card

2 Answers

Volume diminishing creative SB live with 5.1 speakers. (4speakers,1 sub woofer). In the past few weeks  the volume seems to not be as loud as it once was. I now have the dial on speaker all the way up. used to really be loud and could not have volume that high. checked all connections and nothing is muted in volume control. Nothing has ever been changed since getting computer 5 years ago. It just does not have the volume it used to. any suggestions. thanks

Re: volume diminishing

Try other speakers with the card.
Most speakers have an amplifier built-in them. Most of the time they go slowly, which may be the case.

You may have to enable the additional speakers by entering the Creative software, which should have come with your sound card. On my system I left click on the Creative volume panel and the choose console launcher. After entering the Console Launcher you can change the speaker setup.

I used to have sound but the last few weeks i don't

If you already downloaded this driver
and still no success then check your volume control  Start----Control Panel----Sounds And Audio Devices. Check to make sure Mute is not ticked and that the volume is set to high. Click Advanced and see that the volume sliders are all at the top with exception to the 3-D Sound. Click advanced under the first volume control slider and see that it is on. Try this first, if no luck, let me know because there are other solutions. First things first.
