Is it just a dodgy connection between the sound card and speakers?

shut the pc down and remove the card,

clean the gold contacts on the card with a school rubber.
replace the card and see how it works now, you may just have dirt
on the contacts of the card and its picking up the power being used by other parts of the pc.

also check to see if it has a direct link cable these plug direct in the drive to the soundcard and are three wires red white black, they can be a pain if they start to break down or sit to close to the power pack.

you say you need the usb driver ? what is the make model number of your pc/ motherboard what windows is the machine running

i think that driver taz pointed you to is a patch but you must have the soundblaster driver installed first for it to work.

now lucky you i uploaded that sound blaster live 5.1 driver to my own site a while back for someone with the same problem its a direct rip from the install disk so should work for you.
