Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition

1 Answer

Sound loss after windows xp install

A common problem I know but no common solutions. I have a Creative sound blaster 2zs card installed. I'm now using Win xp home, having changed from win 2000 pro.
I've tried various driver downloads from Creative but the best result I get is front and one surround channel working but no centre or rear left.
I know my wiring is ok 'cos I have a white noise test on my processor which shows everything is ok. All speakers are live, just not through my sound card.
Help.....I'm losing the will to live.....

    no, sorry mate and thanks for the advice, but problem remains no matter which speaker config. I try.

    I was condsidering buying a creative DTS-610, which according to their (Creative's),blurb should solve my problem.......inasmuch as I could then put my audio signal out in true digital via an optical cable. I suspect I might have a dead analogue input on my processor which would explain a lot..................................Now all I have do do is find one.....

If not, DO NOT RATE YET. Just add a comment letting me know what's going on and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks.

Neded creative audio driver sb0570 for win 7


I wasn't able to find a plain language description for the SB0570 (assuming it's a Sound Blaster card), but using that model number in a search on the Creative driver database produced this link that lists a Windows 7 driver for the following cards:

Sound Blaster Live! 24-bit
Sound Blaster Audigy Value/SE/LS
Sound Blaster 5.1 VX

The site cautions that the driver should only be used for those devices.

Hope that's helpful.

Install Sound Blaster Live Card


Is the Soundcard already in the PC at the moment?
If you need help putting it in, let me know.

Here's an overview of driver for Windows 98. When the card is inserted in one of the PCI expansion slots you must install it's drivers. Windows will probably detect the card but doesn't know how to control it.

Here's the link I promised above:
[SoundBlaster Live! Platinum 5.1 Drivers and Software]


I hope this helps, need more help. Let me know.
Please rate.

Greetings,

DarkNeogen.
