Shouldn't have any issues. You can use device manager to get the drivers without any issues

Here's what you need to do:

1. Uninstall the Realtek (default motherboard) sound drivers by going to the Device Manager, right clicking on Realtek Audio device (or whatever it's called), and then uninstalling the drivers.

2. Power off computer, unplug power cable, then proceed with physical installation of your sound card.

3. Plug power cable back in and start computer.

4. Navigate to Creative's website, locate your specific product under their support section, then click on downloads. Download the most recent drivers for your specific soundcard and install. Wouldn't be a bad idea to restart after this.

5. You're done! Configure settings using Creative Audio Control Panel (should be in your start folder under Creative, if you installed everything).

You missed a critical thing there bro...

If you just uninstall the drivers for Realtek onboard audio and just reboot it will be re-detected by windows and it will install generic boxed microsoft HD audio drivers and the device will still be active if what your try to do is disable it!!!

You need to enter the BIOS and disable the soundcard AFTER uninstalling the drivers!

I don't see the point in this with windows 7 as the new audio API etc runs fine with multiple soundcards. No reason to uninstall the realtek IMHO as you can assign the expansion audio card to be the default. A big part of Vista/7 is the audio drivers WASAPI and it's ability to use MULTIPLE audio codecs/DSP etc. It was design with the idea that a PC might have say... 4 soundcards. One for the HDMI out on the video adapter, one for say headset, one for speakers and say another DSP for telephony etc. This was one of the main ideas behind the API and why the "Audio Engine" part of it uses Iaudio client "streams" before passing it to the audio engine service. That's above the kernel still unlike XP and back where you'd be at the kernel using kmixer at that point. EEEWWHH!!!

The best part... no more kernel mode driver dev YAY!!!!!!

Vista/Win7 Audio Stack and API <--32:54 is the best part of the new API IMHO Finally a process/session based volume!!!

Inside Win7 Audio Stack

WASAPI is one of the BEST part of Vista/Win7 and was arguably the biggest change to the Windows ecosystem.

i not working guys, The problem is that, that specific Sound Card was made only for that specific motherboard so you HAVE TO download all the drivers and the creative software from Asus.

So when you download the software and try to install it it give you an error saying that not support motherboard detected .

I gonna have to buy a real Creative Sound Card

thank guys for all the help

Sorry don't get the STX version just get the ST version as it's better because it has the header for the H6 analog output board and isn't PCIe thus doesn't need the PCI to PCIe bridge chip that causes latency issues. Also the ST has the world clock chip correction stuff the STX doesn't.
