Have you tried uninstalling and re-installing the hardware driver?

yes, I have....a number of times to no avail....the driver is from a legit creative site....would windows decide it is not a legit driver and disable it??

congrats on still running 98se and not killing yourself. That's one of the most heinous OSes I've ever used.

My suggestion would be to try OLDER versions of the driver, to see if anything changes. I've got more than a few bad releases from Creative.

I always though 98 a fairly stable OS....until now...and yes creative has always given me problems....not as bad as this one though....I have a number of computers running different OS...my son is studying programming and likes to see how all the OS work....thanks again for your time....appreciated
