Sound Blaster sound card compatibility?

ryco325
I have Windows seven OS 64 bit on my computer. I have a sound blaster 840 or something along those lines, but it only has 32 bit drivers is there anyway i can get this to work on my computer? Any help would be much appreciated.

    Hi
    of course the best option is to use those 64 bit drivers from Creative. but if Windows doenst have them built in , you could try using another soundblaster driver that is included with the OS and see which one works.

    But honestly if Creative doesn't have 64 Bit Drivers for this Sound Card it's unlikely to work on a 64 Bit OS.

    Also it's not good enough to say I have a sound blaster 840 or something along those lines

    You need to know exactly what it is you have to look for the correct drivers. If you get the wrong drivers they are not going to work.
