Help SB Live XP: No Sound

    I just installed XP and am running a dual boot with Win98. I can't
    figure out why the sound won't work. Sound Blaster Live. The card's ok
    because it works when I boot to Win98. I'm using a Leadteck MB. I
    installed the drivers in Xp.The SB program is there. Volume controls
    ok. I have 2 Question marks in device manager:
    Multimedia Audio Controller
    SM Bus Controller
    Also when I try to install the Sb drivers, the sestym reboots
    unexpectantly. When I restard my cd-roms have question marks in device
    Is this a SB XP bug or issues? Should I try a different card?
    Any Ideas?

    Are you using the latest drivers from the creative website? If you are using
    drivers from the CD that came with card, I would dl the latest ones (about
    22Mb I think) and try again. Also, make sure you have the latest drivers for
    your motherboard chipset. I would recommend having at least Windows XP
    service pack 1a and DirectX 9 installed.

    If you still don't get anywhere, you could try looking in any Leadtek forums
    to see if it is a common problem and if there is a work-around available.
