Strange Problem with my SB Live!

Last response: in Components

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?

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?

There isn't really any link to give. Go to and select Scan for Updates, and then Driver Updates.
