Im not 100% sure this will work for you but its worth a try

in control panel i have "No audio devices is instelled"... please help me, i really want to get sound...

Linis8, welcome to the forums.

It would go a long way to helping you if we knew what sound card you have.

Seeing as it was never mentioned in this thread, short of the driver (basic only) available from Windows update there will never be any official driver for that card from Creative. That being said there is one person that has modded a driver set (and a couple of the old applications) to work with the old Live series of cards,

Creative Sound Cards.

try the one from #4 there.
