This is the basic Gateway OEM Microsoft Windows 98, Windows 95 driver for the Sound Blaster 16x sound card.

If you try to find the information about CT4180 on Creative website, you will only find these two closest matches (link):

  1. Sound Blaster 16 Value PnP, CT4182
  2. Sound Blaster 16 Value PnP, CT4181

According to PC AV Tech Home, they have a summary on Creative Lab CT4180 sound card. Seems that CT4180 is a ISA sound card with driver version ver. 4.36.13 which only work on Windows 95 and Windows 98.


I managed to find the driver on Gateway website which should be working with Sound Blaster 16x, with driver version 4.36.13.
