does "CRTV-4780" mean "Creative SB Live! Value (WDM)"

  • My dell shipping sheet says my soundcard should be a
    CARD (CIRCUIT) MULTI-MEDIA AUDIO CRTV-4780 FRONT AUDIO JACK

    My device manager says I have a
    Creative SB Live! Value (WDM)


    Do I have the right driver loaded?


    PS -- Why can't I find
    CRTV-4780
    anywhere on the internet?
  • Hi,

    The sound card you have in your computer is Creative Sound Blaster Live 512V, and you can download appropriate drivers for this sound card from

     
    click on the download this link and it will download the file. Follow the instructions given on the page to install the drivers.
     
     
  • When I follow the instructions extract
    R69382.EXE
     
    and execute
    C:\DELL\Drivers\R69382\SBLA05W.exe
     
    the install shield program says:
    "Setup could not detect any Sound Blaster Audio card on your system..."
    "Please ensure that your soundblaster hardware is properly installed..."
     
    The existing driver show in device manager says:
    Creative SB Live! Value (WDM)

    CARD (CIRCUIT), MULTI-MEDIA, AUDIO, CRTV-4780, FRONT AUDIO JACK

  • I know this should be fairly easy but it seems to be more complicated than I expected.  Perhaps I am making it so.

     

    Here is my problem.  I know I am behind the curve but I am finally upgrading my dimension 8100 up to Vista and thus need the sound card drivers. 

     

    The card model number (from the physical card) is CT4780 dell’s reference "card, multi-media, audio, CRTV-4780, front audio jack" 

     

     

    Does anyone know what the correct Vista drivers are for my card or is the official upgrade to Vista process to physically remove this card.

     

    If anyone knows which drivers work with this card, please let me know, I have been trying it for several days with no luck.
