I dont think it is that. Try out Realtek HD sound manager, it might work with that soundcard...

Um, no it won't. RealTek cards need RealTek drivers - Creative sound-cards need CREATIVE drivers!!

First check to make sure device is properly connected

Go to Creative's DL page and make sure you have the latest drivers, as ones on install disk may be outdated and thus causing the issues

i am using creative sound blaster card 4.1/5.1. i have creative 4.1 m4500 speaker. all the 4 channels are working but in control panel shows that i can use either mono or stereo system. please help me.

I am sure your Creative PCI sound card come with a CD if you bought it brand new. Install the drivers first than only install the rest of the software. You can go to Control Panel > Device manager and see whether there is any yellow exclamation mark. If there is than you may need to install the driver. Hope this help.
