Question about Creative Labs Sound Blaster Live! 24-bit External External Sound System

Open Question

I have an old external soundblaster in perfect condition. Got a new vista computer and reinstalled soundblaster with original CD. After installing, my headphones did not work and the realtek HD audio manager only worked by plugging headphones directly into the computer. Can you help me get the SB back up and running. I am a transcriptionist and need it for my job.

SOURCE: Does soundblaster ct4870 have audio drivers for vista?

I just checked Creative's web site. This card is no longer officially supported by them, and has not official Vista support.
While I found several sites promising drivers, I would be wary of messing with this for fear of turning 1 problem into 2.
IF Gateway has a driver for your specific model, that would probably be OK to use (if it supports Vista), but otherwise I would replace the card.
If you're not sure about model # just post a serial # and I can look it up from there.

Purchase computer 3 yrs ago with Vista. Turn on computer today and black screen with This copy is not geniune in bottom right corner. Need confirmation ID but no one at Acer or Microsoft will help me...


Several possibilities:
1. a computer-virus is displaying that message.
2. Windows itself has messed-up, i.e., _falsely_ issuing the message, for no good reason;
3. somebody installed a "bootleg" copy of Vista.

Look on the bottom of the laptop.
Is there a genuine Microsoft sticker, indicating that the computer was shipped with Vista (or XP???) pre-installed? Is there a 25-character product-key?

If you have the original "System Restore" set of CD-ROMs that were factory-shipped with the computer, then backup your data (to an external disk-drive), and reinstall Windows, using that product-key on the sticker.

If you don't have those CD-ROMs, ACER will courier-ship you a replacement set ($20 plus shipping).

So, in brief, backup/reinstall/restore.

Hard Drive Problem


Based from what you said, try installing a different vista. Don't use your old installer. If it still occurs try replacing your hard drive.

Original windows


Have a look at the bottom of your laptop and you should see a Windows label which will have the Produce key printed on the label.
Borrow a Windows installation CD, must be the same as the Windows version that is printed on the label eg. Windows XP Home, or Windows XP Professional or one of the Windows Vista versions.
Use this CD to reinstall Windows on your laptop.
If you haven't got a Windows label, you need to purchase a new Windows install CD or if you have a old version of Windows 98 or ME to can purchase a Windows Vista upgrade which is much cheaper than buying a new Windows Vista.

Hi i lost my original cd with drivers for creative how can i get


Hello marazas785,

Simply go to this address:

http://www.soundblaster.com/language.asp?sDestUrl=/support/downloads

Choose the country etc etc etc, and then search the downloads.

If for some reason you cannot find the drivers, you can also go to google and type in the driver name... But you should be able to get them off the above soundblaster site.

Hope that helps you, so please leave a rating so I know if it has.

Good luck

Window cd


Hi,
The windows vista DVD that you have is an OEM and not a retail windows vista copy. If your friends computer is a non dell system, you would not be able to install it on his computer in the first place. If its a dell computer purchased before 2007 , it will not install.
In all other conditions it would install without any problems



Thanks
