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.

Install new sound card. Creative tech


Before you install the sound card, you install the drivers for it. Drivers are small 'pieces' of software, that allow the Operating System to 'communicate' with the device. If you did not, then No, Windows did not recognize your sound card.

(In essence. Read on) (Not to insult your intelligence. Windows XP, is an example of an Operating System. So is Vista)

In this instance, the device is a Sound Card. Those drivers are on a CD, that should have been provided with the sound card.

Reasoning that you install the drivers first, then the Sound card is this,

When you install a device, Windows 'recognizes' it, as soon as Windows starts up. Windows 'breaks it's neck' to hurry up, and find drivers to match the device. If there are no actual drivers, then Windows chooses from Thousands of Generic drivers it has, and matches one up.

This is No good. The device needs THE drivers for it.
Then the owner comes along, and installs the drivers later. (Or in your case, didn't)

This causes a driver conflict.

BUT, you didn't indicate you installed the CD, therefore didn't install the drivers, and Windows is using the generic drivers. Crappy quality results.

Suggest you do this. Computer off, and unplugged
from the surge protector. Press the Power On button, and hold it in. Hold it in for a count of Five seconds, then let go. (And I mean Five at least. Count, 1001,..1002,..1003,..1004,..1005)
Do this procedure two more times.

What you are doing is clearing CMOS error codes, and resetting your BIOS, back to the factory default setting.

Computer unplugged, computer case open, touch the metal frame of the computer case. (Work on a table) This will relieve your body of Static electricity. Your body always carries static electricity. Static will silently fry out, your delicate computer hardware components.

Now take the sound card out. Leave the case open, plug the computer back into power. WAIT 1 minute, then turn the computer on. When Windows has fully loaded, install the CD for the sound card, Follow the instructions.
At the end, if it asks you do you want to restart your computer, NO!
Close all windows, until you are back at your desktop screen. Shut your computer down normally. (Start>Turn off computer>Shut Down)

Unplug the computer from power. Forget this part, and you may be buying a different computer.
Install the sound card. Close the computer case. Plug the computer back in. WAIT 1 minute. Turn the computer on.
Now how's your sound?
