Windows closing slow means you have a bunch of program that are running in the back ground. Windows has to close each before the system can shut down. To see just what is running in the back ground. Allow windows to completly finish opening. Click the start button, click run. In the window type, msconfig & click ok. System Configuration Utility window will open. Click on the Startup tab. Now you can see just what programs are running in the back ground.
Adding memory can also help speed up a slow pc & keeping the system clean by using the two programs listed next.
First. Run disk cleanup, a windows program found in system tools. Than run Defrag also found in system tools. Restart the pc when finished. This should help your system to run a bit better.
If you have the CD that came with the sound card uninstall the software through Add/ Remove programs found in the control panel. Restart the pc. Reinstall the drivers from the CD & try opening a few programs. Open & run the program your using to play music. Any better? If not try using another music program like iTunes a free download found here. http://www.apple.com/itunes/
You can also try the drivers from creative they may be newer than your CD here: http://us.creative.com/support/downloads/welcome.asp?action=next

I have a creative sound card and i want its sound driver pls tell me what to do vijay


Look at the model number on the Creative sound card. You want to match up the correct drivers.

Once you find it go to Creative Worldwide Support,

http://support.creative.com/

A) Click on the SoundBlaster icon.

B) Click on the soundcard icon that matches yours. I'm going to click on the X-Fi Xtreme Audio icon to use for an example.

Here on the next page we see we are presented with two driver choices.

1) Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio driver 1.04.0090

and,

2) Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio pack 1.04.0079


The 1.04.0090 audio driver is for Vista, and Windows 7.
It also contains the Creative Audio console.
Click on Show Details to the right for more information.

The 1.04.0079 audio pack is for Windows XP, and Vista.
It also has the Creative Audio Console.
Click on Show Details to the right for more information.

When you have the applicable choice, click on the red Download.

On the next page read the Creative Software License Agreement, then click on Agree.

A small window will come up. Write down the file name.
For example I am looking at Opening XFXA_PCDRV_LB_1_04_0079

The file name is > XFXA_PCDRV_LB_1_04_0079.exe

This is the file name I will look for.

Click on Save File.

A small window will come up on the left.
Quickly look at the heading of this window.
This is where the file will download to.

Look for My Documents, (Documents for Vista), or Downloads, or Desktop, in the heading.

Close all windows, go back to the desktop screen. See the file name?

NO?
Click on Start > then click on My Documents. (WinXP)

Don't see the file name there?
Look for a folder named Downloads.
Double-click on the Downloads folder name look for the file name.

When you see the file name double-click on it. Follow the easy instructions of the Installation Wizard.
(Essentially just click on Next, Next, and Finish. Then restart your computer.
