You should never do a format until you have all your drivers, programs etc you are going to need. Since its a Dell I'm thinking that it has on board sound card, the drivers should be on your Dell disk with all your other drivers. If the pc is running you could also run Everest Home to get that info.AbsolutJVJ said:i had to reformat my comp and now i'm re-downloading my soundcard drivers, but i cant figure out which one to DL can someone help, its a dell 8250 dimension desktop if that helps
I hate when that happens. On the Dell site there was a patch or something listed for a SB Live card did you see that? And also did you buy this card after the Dell in other words independant of the Dell, or did it come with the Dell?AbsolutJVJ said:when i checked Everest it says Creative SB Live! series audio processor, but when i try t o download the driver pack from here http://us.creative.com/support/downloads/ and i chose soundblaster/Live!/and 5.1(dell) for my options and when i try drivers it says i have no soundblaster card installed on my comp. Do i need to find the software first since i just formatted (and by find i dont mean in my house i mean on the internet) thanks for the help
