    Can anyone please tell me if the update posted at SoundBlaster.com for the
    above drivers makes any difference to the system performance. I have had
    many problems caused by the drivers for this card and have even had to
    revert to a standard PC from ACPI. I am loath to install it if the update
    could perhaps cause me further problems.
    Thanks a lot.

    The drivers on the website have worked fine for me. I use them alone.
    Sometimes a SB Live's drivers will not be uninstalled properly resulting in
    a complete reinstall of the oS(unless you are good at cleaning the
    registry). So in this case it might be worth a shot. My SB 5.1 works great
    with ACPI, S3 standby...etc. I have mine in PCI slot 2 from the top down.

    AGP < AGP4X Card
    PCI1 < Nothing
    PCI2 < SB 5.1
    PCI3 < Modem
    PCI4 < 3Com NIC
    PCI5 < Hauppauge TV card

    Cheers Matt mine seems to be ok in ACPI at present but it was Creative who
    told me to revert to Standard PC.
