No documents are required, if a good has a mechanical damage but the repair requires payment.
If a good has not a mechanical damage, a document confirmative the date of purchase (a cash register receipt) + the warranty card are required.

Check parameters of all inputs and outputs in the control panel of the sound card. It is desirable, that their volume level was not on the maximum level, but within the limit 75-90%. First of all, it goes to regulations of digital audio, synthesizer and CD-ROM. It is obligatory to disconnect all uninvolved inputs, especially microphone and linear inputs. If noise background and interference remain, then it has a meaning to move the sound card into other socket, a little farther from other boards. Sometimes interferences are created by a graphic accelerator, modem, network board, as well as long homemade audio cord of bad quality. If your sound card has two audio outputs (increase and linear), then use the second output, because amplifiers built in the sound cards usually of the very bad quality. Frequently a separate linear input in the sound card is absent, and there are switches on the board, which commutate the output jack to the amplifier or to the linear output. Put switches to connection of the liner output.
As НТ-485 speaker system in the 5.1 mode has only the optical and coaxial inputs, then it can be connected only to sound cards with the optical or coaxial outputs. Widespread series of SB Live& #33; and Audigy sound cards in inexpensive versions does not have these outputs; therefore, in order to connect НТ-485 you have to buy special Digital I/O Module or SB Drive connectors-converters. Below is an unofficial list of models compatible with НТ-485 for Digital I/O Module: CT4660, CT4770, CT4800; and for SB Drive: CT4860, CT4861, SB0010 and Audigy Drive. Before buying converters make sure in their compatibility exactly with your system.
First of all, detect the source of the alternating-current hum. There can be several of them: the amplifier of the speaker system (SS), cables, connecting elements of SS among themselves and the amplifier with the sound card, and finally, the computer with the sound card. In order to check the amplifier of SS, disconnect all signal cables from its input. Turn on the amplifier and make sure that the alternating-current hum reduced considerably or disappeared in full. If the hum level has not changed, the amplifier has to be repaired. All cables must be inserted in jacks tightly. If any clamps are used in SS, then they must be thoroughly cleaned from isolation and contaminations and fastened tightly, i.e. you must provide the least electric resistance of the system: connector (clamp)-cable. Signal cables must have braided screen at inputs cables and braids are to be grounded, otherwise signal cables will serve as antennas for the interference signal recept and the alternating-current hum. It is more difficult to eliminate the alternating-current hum, if its source is the computer with the sound card. It is necessary to ground the computer according to the national standard – there can be no compromises or unauthorized activity, because the operation safety will depend on the grounding correctness. If your computer is not grounded or grounded out of a standard, the elimination of the alternating-current hum is problematical. In order to reduce the hum we also recommend to install a sound card on the motherboard, whenever possible, as far as possible from the video and network cards.
Connection of 5.1 speaker systems to Creative Live& #33; 5.1 sound card is rather difficult process. Therefore, before connecting a speaker system to the card, read thoroughly the included documentation, study the location of input and output connectors, purpose and functioning of operation mode switches, select the required connecting cables. Variants of Creative Live& #33; 5.1 card differ by their connector designs. There are cases, when in the guise of Creative Live& #33; 5.1 sound cards they sell cards with 4.1 output. The layout of output connectors, which most Creative Live! 5.1 cards have, is given below. The layout of jacks (for 3.5 mm mini jacks) on the card bracket is the following: · the output to the front satellites is green, the 2nd jack from below; · the output to the rear satellites is black, the 1st from below; · the output to the central satellite and subwoofer is yellowish, the 1st from above. It should be pointed out that the jack of the last connector (output to the central satellite and subwoofer is yellowish, the 1st from above) has not the 3-pin construction, but 4-pin. Purpose of the connector contacts changes depending on what you connected to the mixer – an analog or digital output. When the analog output is connected to this jack, then the 4-pin mini jack must be inserted: its spout is the central satellite output, the 1st shoulder is the subwoofer output, the 2nd and the 3rd shoulders are the ground. When the digital output is connected to the mini jack spout, digital signal is supplied for two front satellites, to the 1st shoulder – for two rear satellites, to the 2nd – for for a central satellite and subwoofer, the 3rd is the ground. Therefore, connect correctly "тюльпаны" to the input of center and subwoofer of SS. When an ordinary stereo jack with the third output of the card is used and when analog mode in set in the mixer, then there is a high probability that the signal from subwoofer will be short-circuited to the ground – and the loudspeaker will not sound. In this case, it is necessary to select a mini jack compatible with the card or to move the available mini jack along its axis. After connecting 5.1 speaker system with Creative Live! 5.1 sound card, set 5.1 mode in the mixer and a mode of the output signal corresponding to your speaker system – analog or digital. Check the connection correctness of loudspeakers in the mixer using the test. The subwoofer is not checked by the program.
You have to purchase additionally special CT4800 or Audigy Drive connectors-converters for correct connection of the speaker system with the sound card. Organization of S/PDIF signals to Audigy and other sound cards is an “invention” of Сreative Company; it seems that it was conditioned by marketing considerations.
The documentation is available on the web-site www.creativehelp.com. Unofficial information regarding types of signals on connectors for connection of external devices to sound cards of Сreative Company you can find on the web-site www.kxproject.spb.ru/help/hardware.htm.
