Windows 7: Sound Blaster

14 Jul 2011   #1

Sound Blaster

My sound chip on my motherboard seem to have gone kaput, got a Creative Sound Blaster Audigy SE.
Apparently it don't work with Win7, yet its all right on my Vista partition.

Trying to find a driver that will make it compatible with 7.
Anyone had that problem.

hi wysiwyg49, and welcome to sevenforums,

vista drivers should work ok.

try right-clicking on the driver installer program >> properties >> compatibility >> tick the box and try one of the vista modes.

please let us know if it works (or not)!

Not sure who told you it didn't work with Windows 7 as Creative does have Windows 7 drivers for it,

Creative Worldwide Support > Audigy SE

Or you could use the modded set from #1 here,

SB P17X Series Support Pack 2.7 (04/01/2010) - Aud... - Creative Labs

AIt has a few more of the old apps modded to work with 7 than the original 7 driver.

This seems to be a problem that Creative has not been able to fix with new drivers. The work around is to limit the computer to below 4GB of memory. Has anyone come up with drivers that work so I can use all my memory?
