Go to the creative Labs website and download the updated drivers for windows 7. Your other option would be to run this device in Compatibility mode with the Vista Drivers.

SOURCE: i had bought new creative inspire m4500 but instead of four only

I found the solution to my own problem.

(First install the software that is provided in the form of a CD with your SoundBlaster. I had to buy a 5.1VX Creative Sound Blaster for my Creative Inspire M4500 4.1 speakers.)

Go to the folder ‘Creative’ which you may find in your Program Files.
Then double click on the following one after the other:
Surround Mixer
SurMixer (SurMixer.exe)

Now go to EAX.
Select CMSS 3D.
Check on the box ‘Enable CMSS 3D Surround.’
Select ‘Stereo Surround.’

Hope your problem is solved now:))

Unfortunately Creative Labs has discontinued support for that model sound card. There is no Windows 7 driver as the last driver released for it was in 2005.

You'll need to purchase a newer sound card. A Windows 7 Compatible sound card starts in the $25 range.

IK Multimedia Production IK Multimedia Amplitube 2 Jimi Hendrix Edition Crossgrade/Upgrade (AT200UJHIN) won't play right on windows 7

Have you tried to use XP mode in Windows 7? In Windows 7 you can install XP mode and attempt to run the software from the virtualized environment. For the download for XP mode on Windows 7, go to this website:

Another thought that I have is that in Windows 7 - have you searched for an updated signed driver for your sound card? Depending on the model of computer you own - you can usually find the signed drivers at the manufacturers support website. Sometimes, changing the driver you are using for your sound card can also effect how your sound interfaces with different programs.

I hope this bit of information helps!

Using the "Personalization Panel" Program

If Creative Labs does not have a Windows 7 driver for your model sound card, then the sound card is considered too old and they won't provide further support for this sound card. Creative Labs wants you to purchase a later model sound card.

I want to change my wallpaper but cant

Most likely your netbook came with Windows 7 Starter Edition. You can tell for sure by looking at the Windows License sticker that is affixed to the bottom of the system.

In Windows 7 Starter Edition, Microsoft disabled a number of features, one of them being the ability to change the wallpaper on your desktop. Below is a link that describes the missing features in Starter Edition, and provides a comparison of all the version of Windows 7.
