  1. iv just installed vista Business and have a problem with my audio.

    im using creative 5.1 sound system and on board sound card. As there is 3 sets of speakers to plug in(rear, front, sub) im having problems.

    with xp i used nvidia drivers and used the nvidia control center to change my line in and mic interfaces to auidio input.

    As the nVidia drivers aren't compatible with vista is there anyway or any software tool i can use to solve this.

    Because Vista is new, there`s a lot of problems with drivers. I suggest you contact your mobo manufacturers to see if they have any Vista compatible drivers for your mobo.

    Regards Howard :)

    well at the moment im just using realtek which windows brought down for me and the sound is working fine, just not all of the speakers. i just need a utility to be able to alter the audio inputs if that is possible.

    As I said, maybe you should check out your mobo manufactures website, or maybe even the realtek website.

    I`m pretty sure you`re going to need Vista specific drivers etc.

    You won't know for sure until you do as Howard suggests and try.
