Strange Problem with my SB Live!


I have a SB Live! Platinum.

I've had a lot of problems with it, but recently it has worked.

Now, when I turn on my computer, I hear the startup sound.

But, I don't heard any sound after that!

I have tried switching drivers, disabling all the startup items, using System Restore, and of course making sure the volume isn't muted.

I'm using Windows XP Pro on a 733MHz P3.

Does anyone know what the problem is?

  2. Not such a strange problem, I used to see it once in a while on my SB Live Platinum 5.1. Forgot what I had to do to fix it though.

    What's the frequency, Kenneth?
  3. Which driver are you using? I have some problem wiht newest driver on Creative's web site. I just use the older driver and all problem is gone.
  4. Thanks Everyone!

    I discovered what the problem was.........

    ......Windows XP of course!

    MS has a driver for download that fixes the problem.

    (What a greate eXPerence!)

  5. Can you give me the link for the fix? Thanks.
  6. There isn't really any link to give. Go to and select Scan for Updates, and then Driver Updates.
  7. Thanks.
