Problem With Sound Blaster LIVE CT4830

Hey People!

Am having problem with my Sound blaster live audio card, tried to install a dozen of drivers not sure why it's not working either..done according to compatibility mode and etc but it's not working any body got any idea how i can go about working this, like how i should be exactly doing this because this is quite frustrating if i have to replace this sound card for a really expensive upgrade which is unnecessary

Hope u can help

Old hardware by a company notorious for bad drivers. Time to move on and find a real audio solution.

If you think about it, your pc really only does 2 things for the most part. It shows you video and it lets you hear sound.

Get a new, decent audio card that at least is marketed as being compatible with Windows Vista.

I have no idea if this is compatible driver that 7 will work with. You could try though.

You would do really well with something like this.

Sabrent USB-SND8 8-Channel USB 2.0 External 7.1 Sound Box at TigerDirect.com

I can recommend more expensive solutions or internal ones if you want. But this seems fairly decent and good value for the price.

Only hope for that old card (like 10+ years old) is #4 here,

Creative Sound Cards.

Make sure you uninstall/cleanup everything you have tried installing before.

Be that as it may, you show me any hardware company that is providing Windows 7 support for something that came out 10+ years ago.

I have a spare Sound Blaster Live! audio card and will test it in my system and try to come to some conclusion for you if that would help?
