If your sound card spec is showing W2000 OR WXP only then it wont not work on Vista if a driver is availabe as a rule Vista will find it. You can always type your card into Google for a Vista driver and see what comes up.
Settings for on-board (meaning the Motherboard) sound, can be found by going into the BIOS. To get into the BIOS Main Menu it is usually done by pressing Del on the keyboard during startup. The Main Menu window shows clearly what keys to press to navigate through the BIOS. Navigate through to Peripherals and look for Sound A97, check that it is disabled. Then click on F10 to exit and save the BIOS settings.
umm (a.nonymous) ... you are probably right, but the driver in my link above should have solved that!
Still no luck: have tried all these things but still sound card does not show up the device manager! One point - we do not have an on board sound card on the motherboard which is a Asus P5N32-E SLI.11.XX core 2.
Welcome to Creative hell my friend, visit the Creative forum where you will find a host of X-Fi and Audigy owners putting together a lynch mob. Its ugly! I have reboxed my Fatal1ty and brought an X-Meridian thats how bad the situation is for Vista support. You have been warned, good luck and don't forget your helmet.
