    yup only thing for you to do is forget about the onboard sound and buy a new sound card you can pick up creative audigy sound cards pretty cheap these days and they do put out descent sound

    Creative has released a Beta 2.18.0011 driver for the majority of the Audigy series under Windows XP, Vista and 7. The driver fixes a device error caused by enabling audio enhancements, as well as resolving an incorrect speaker configuration being shown in Audio Control Panel.

    I tried this on my P5PE-VM Asus motherboard. At the end of installation it says "driver not found, restart your computer and try again"! Is there anything else I have to do?

    Looking for a driver and software for my Diamond XS51 sound card. I'm currently using this driver:

    Name CMI8738/C3DX PCI Audio Device
    Manufacturer C-Media
    Status OK
    PNP Device ID PCI\VEN_13F6&DEV_0111&SUBSYS_011113F6&REV_10\4&1CF725D4&0&00F0
    I/O Port 0x0000CC00-0x0000CCFF
    IRQ Channel IRQ 16
    Driver c:\windows\system32\drivers\cmaudio.sys (5.12.1.639, 370.83 KB (379,726 bytes), 11/11/2009 11:15 AM)

    but when i installed it it disabled the audio config software, so now i have an annoying echo.

    thanks in advance :)

    Drew,

    Thanks for the reply :)

    Yes it is old, i paid $15.99 for it so i can't complain. I did find a W7 x86 beta driver that i had to install in Vista SP1 compatiblity mode, Vista SP2 and no compatibility crashed W7 with BSOD's.

    Anyone else needing this driver or CMedia drivers for W7 x86 can find their beta drivers here C-Media Company Information

    Latest Beta drivers but still have issues

    Thanks for posting the latest drivers (the .98 version) but I am still having some issues with my SB X-Fi 5.1 USB card on Win 7 64 bit OS & would love some suggestions.

    Its sounds like it is not sending the correct signals to the sub & the center speaker when testing in Win 7. Essentially the center speaker is only getting a VERY faint signal & the sub sounds......a bit quiet. Very much out of balance even when I have turned the center speakers & Sub up considerably.

    When I test using the Creative Console I get no sound to the center speaker - it is fed to the sub instead & the sub is very quiet indeed.

    All help greatly appreciated.

    Sound drivers Creative and others

    you can find most of the Creative drivers that work for win7 and vista here and you can ever request other drivers if you can't find them there. Hope it helps you.

    Loonwin7 - Thanks for the link but it does not look like it will support my hardware.

    Kemical - I will in the near future update my BIOS as I am just using whatever it came out of the box with. Not sure it will effect the sound given its an external USB sound card though right? Certainly will try!

    Hey!
    I have an external card, Tascam Fireone installed and working (allmost). I want to use this sound card for all programs, like Winamp, Windows media player, games etc etc.

    Problem is that I get no sound from card except from when I use FL studio 9 and the ASIO4ALL V2. Driver seems to be properly installed.

    This is the warning I get when I try to use Windows media player
    Windows Media Player cannot play the file because there is a problem with your sound device. There might not be a sound device installed on your computer, it might be in use by another program, or it might not be functioning properly.

    Note that this sound card did not work with Vista 64 bit (it didnt want to install), but with Windows 7 (32-bit) it installed fine and I find it in Control panel/hardware and sound. I just dont get any sound other when using ASIO4ALL V2.

    Tascam Fireone is upgraded with the latest 1.10 driver.

    Thanks for help!

    Greetings H.S.

    @kalleklovn its what you'd expect from something that isn't designed as an everyday soundcard what you really need is something more like an X-Fi
