hi there, try downloading this driver+software

Zaim welcome to the forums.

Guess you missed the sixth post in this thread where I wrote,

What it has is the Sigamtel onboard audio, and what you are trying to get to work is the Audigy (or even possibly X-Fi) MB software. What this is is a software package that Dell and a few others bought/licensed from Creative so that the onboard sound can use some of the audigy or X-Fi software, it in no way means that you can install the Creative drivers or any of the software directly.
Unfortunately your suggestion just won't work.

Mine looks like an express card. It looks like there are screws right under my express card so i could investigate into taking it out and replacing it. Thanks a lot storm! Do you have any suggestions on an express card with 3 holes instead of the one you linked with only 2?

Unfortunately that is the only one I know of, that and laptops aren't really my strong suit. Hopefully someone else on here will have a recommendation for you. Meanwhile while waiting it might be worth having a look around over here,

5.1 sound problems

Hi,I have a C-Media cm6501 sound card in my Asus M2N-E SLI motherboard and I have installed Windows 7 Ultimate (x86),I managed to configure everything to get the 5.1 system working,but the player,with or without codecs,does not play in 5.1,it just uses the two front speakers.I tested the speakers in the driver program and in windows in control panel,sound and it works fine but it stops there.I tried Winamp,Media player 11,Media player classic and 3 types of codecs and it's the same result,what can I do to make my 5.1 surround system work? I had Windows Media center edition(SP2) before and it worked fine.I also tried vista and I had the same problems I'm having with Windows 7.
