I was using a sound blaster driver for my Boston PC speakers. I have now upgraded to windows 7 and cannot get them to work and drivers wont load.

Any thoughts?

It's possible that if you have an older sound blaster card, it won't have drivers written for Windows 7, especially if you moved straight from XP to Windows 7. This is especially true if you are running a 64 bit operating system now, as they were not very common when older Sound Blaster cards were made.

If this is the case the easiest thing to do is to try and let Win7 find the drivers by either going to Device Manager and searching, or as Combat said, do windows updates and it may find it there too. They would most likely be genericish and if not then certainly not the latest drivers but they're better than nothing.
