SPEAKER DRIVERS

Recommended Posts

Can anyone recommend a safe website to down load a SB driver?  There are a zillions of sites, but all seem to want you to register and set up an account. I don't want to get a million spam e-mails trying to sell me stuff. :blink:  THANKS!

What's the model and manufacturer of the component you need the driver for?  I'm guessing Soundblaster by your reference to SB but wasn't sure.

They aren't "speaker drivers", they are "Audio Drivers" and they can be obtained from the  manufacturer of the Desktop or Notebook you are using for the Operating System that is installed.

As Samuel has noted, the Manufacturer and the platform Model Number will provide a road map to the Audio Driver you seek.

Yes, if it's a Creative soundcard/audio codec product, you should be able to locate the driver by finding your model on this page or on this page and if you aren't certain about the exact model, you should be able to find that information on the manufacturer of your computer's website where they list the drivers and/or components/specifications.  If your card includes access to any of their enhancement tools/software such as Sound Blaster X-Fi and/or THX TruStudio Pro, you'll likely need to get that directly from your system manufacturer's website on their support/software/driver download page for your product/model as I do not believe that Creative provides downloads for those tools/applications.

You also may be able to use the Creative Software AutoUpdate application if it was installed on your system/is included in the driver version hosted on your PC manufacturer's website, however it's a pretty old app, and while it does still function, it uses old ActiveX plugin technology meaning that its web interface/version requires Internet Explorer to run, however the desktop application version should work without IE, but it does need to be allowed through your firewall if you use any kind of third party firewall (and you may also be notified/prompted by the Windows Firewall when it tries to connect to check for updates).

If you can provide the model number of the SoundBlaster card and/or your computer manufacturer and model number (such as a Dell XPS 13 where Dell is the manufacturer and XPS 13 is the model number as an example) we should be able to assist you in finding a direct link to the drivers/software for your system and its components, including the SoundBlaster audio card.

By the way, if you want to do this an easier way, you may do the following which will show us more info about your hardware so that we can more easily locate the driver(s)/software you require:

Provide System Specifications:

  • Please download Speccy from here and save the ZIP file to your desktop or another location where you can easily find it.
  • Right-click the file select Extract All... then click Extract in the window that pops up and it should be extracted to a folder in the same location as the ZIP file you downloaded.
  • Open the extracted folder and then double-click on the version of Speccy appropriate for your system (select Speccy.exe if using a 32 bit Windows version or Speccy64.exe if you are running a 64 bit version of Windows) and click Yes, OK or Allow if prompted by User Account Control.
  • Once the program starts it will analyze your system, please be patient as it may take a few moments to complete.
  • Once it finishes and none of the areas say Analyzing click on the File button at the top and select Save Snapshot...
  • Save the file to your desktop and click Ok to confirm
  • Go to your desktop and right click on the file you just created and hover over Send to and select Compressed (zipped) Folder
  • Please attach the zip file you just created to your next post
