You can use the windows disk to over-write the ubuntu installation. Just boot from the windows disk, and when it asks where to install, tell it to format the disk and create a partition from the unpartitioned space. Windows will format the disk and you should be good to go. Keep in mind, everything on the disk will be lost.
My computer is an old Compaq Evo. It's around the same age. And I'm running Ubuntu 11.04 just fine. I upgraded from 8.04, to 10, now to 11.04
I have to say 11.04 has amazing drivers, everything seems to work 100% of the time with it now. And it supports more PNP (Plug-n-play) devices
Best part about Ubuntu is, you can upgrade, and down grade based on your likes or dislikes.
Currently there is no official win 7 driver for this card. i woudl recommend trying to use the windows xp ones but it is unlikely that the card will work with them.
I gave up on my old creative card 16bit Live Value and got $25 equivalent from tiger direct.
Also if your not too fond of windows try ubuntu. You can try with out replacing windows. As i know it support the old creative cards.
Please try switching just to Analog Stereo Duplex mode only. When you do this, the linux kernel will only load the ALSA(Advanced Linux Sound Architecture) drivers for the Audio Device, which works in all cases.
If that fails, go to System>Preferences>Main Menu and enable the Multimedia System Selection menu.When enabled, select ALSA Mixer default device ONLY.
Have a great day ahead. All the best.
Ok here what you need to do, when you start your pc or laptop, you need to press the escape button (ESC) it might be the delete button depending on how old is you pc or laptop, and change the KERNEL to the previous version, as it seem that one of the latest kernel i cannot remember if it is the 2.24.18 ? as a bug about the sound. so what i did was to reverse to the previous KERNEL.
So do it and enjoy
PS: please keep in mind that any spcifique setting like your "preload" or "prelink" or the tweak of your profile "preload" will be lost so you will have to do it again.
Hope this answer your trouble.
