Looks like you need to buy a new soundcard. Creative Labs makes an excellent 7.1 digital card for PCI slot that is relatively cheap. Just make sure when you purchase the card, it is Vista Compatable.

According to Microsoft, Sound Blaster 1040 fully compatible with Win 7 and does not need any extra software. Use Windows 7 Update and check for updates, under optional as well.

You are not too likely to find such a thing. Althoug it is a very good card, support was discontinued long before Vista came out.

I cant find creative sb live card for vista


Sorry, this is not really a solution, but it appears Creative considered these products to be 'End of Life' in early 2008, and never developed a driver for Vista. Good luck!
