    I'm working on a friend's system here, and we're having some
    perplexing problems getting this Sound Blaster Live! 5.1 card to work.
    We have already disabled the integrated sound (VIA OnChip PCI
    Device>ACR7Audio) through the BIOS, and we are still experiencing
    problems. The system doesn't detect any audio hardware at all. It sees
    the hardware fine, but it doesn't detect the hardware and enebale
    playback for music, videos, and other media. This was happening before
    we put in the PCI Sound Blaster Live!, and despite having the onboard
    sound disabled, continues to occur. Does anyone have any idea how this
    might be corrected? We've been struggling for hours attempting to
    manually disable the integrated sound through the device manager, with
    no luck of course, so if anyone knows how to correct this I'd
    appreciate the help.
