Turtle Beach Santa Cruz Sound Card un-able to install DRIVER


  • Windows 7 did not find a driver from the NET so I downloaded

    Turtle Beach Santa Cruz Driver 5.12.4161s (4/25/2002)

    From, but after running the install package the install package said that it could not install due to not being the right OS. I tried several times and once it looked like it installed, but still no sound.

    Install driver in compatibility mode (both XP & 98) still no sound; made sure volume was up and changed the plug input on the card several times for trial purposes still no sound.

     I installed on a modified Dell Server (SC420) with 2.8gHZ P4 with the aforementioned SOUND CARD and 2 gigs of memory. The video card I post that later.

    Perhaps its time to buy modern sound card that has vista support.

    Installed Sound Blaster Audigy 2 card, now everything beautiful again.

  • Try searching the Turtle Beach Site.  There find the make and model of your card and see if they have Vista Drivers available.  If they do then those should install for you.
