If it is in a cardslot, change the slot. Especially if it is in the
bottommost slot.

If it is one I think it is (PCMCIA card for a laptop) the website says for
Vista "(Beta drivers available from us.creative.com)" Have you downloaded
and installed the drivers from us.creative.com? The drivers that come with
it are for XP and W2k.

Are you trying to use the drivers from the cd that comes with it? The
website says to get beta drivers from us.creative.com for Vista. The ones
on the cd are only for Windows 2000 and XP.

TommyK and others:

I found the so-called Vista driver for the Audigy Notebook 2 ZS, but it
sounded — at best — no better than the on-board system, and not nearly as
good as it does in my XP laptop. So I uninstalled it. Giving it another go,
I downloaded the driver again last night off the Creative website, but when
I plugged in the sound card I got the dreaded BSOD. Now I'm afraid to try it
again.

Are you supposed to install the card first, then download and install the
driver? Could that be the reason for the blue screen?

Some hardware should not be installed until the software is installed first.
This is usually the case with HP printers. A sound card may work the same
way but check the manual on the website. Most plug and play devices work
the other way; you plug in the device and let the system find the software
and install it.

TommyK,

Keep us posted. I'm always interested in better (and louder) sound. No
matter what you've got, there's always something else that's better. Kind of
like computers and HDTVs.

Bump.

I have this exact issue. Fresh install of Vista 64 Ultimate and it's not
recognizing my sound card. I then went to the Creative site and downloaded
an application which was supposed to download the driver. The application
installed some software on my computer but Vista still isn't recognizing the
sound card.

It shows up as 'Other devices' - Multimedia Audio controller.

I'm getting a little frustrated at this point, I've had to play with my
BIOS, had blue screen crashes and now this... it seems with every fix there's
another problem.
