Sound Blaster Live

By jlucyk ·
I re-installed windows 98 now when I re-installed the sound blaster live card and software I get sounds but it the beginning of the sound over and over for minutes. I called sound blaster tech support and they just told me to try a different slot so I did that and the same thing is happening. Please help I tried re-installed windows 98 4 times now.

You can try to update your sound blaster files by going to their web page. (www.creative .com ) update drivers . Or you can try manual port settings for any kind of conflic.
If you have a previous sound card build on MB try to disable it - go to -start- control panel - system - device - highlight the sound device and click on properties . good luck

It may not be the sound card that is causing the problem ,check the cd rom settings in the bios control panel and device manager to see at what speed they are set to.Go to the device manager and locate cd-rom,make sure you have no conflicts and thenupdate the driver.Also make sure all the connections are seated.

Well, you can try this-
1. Remove the drivers for the card by right click on my computer and select properties.
Expand the Sound section/Multimedia section and remove all entries.
2. Restart computer and let windows detect card. Use the disk thatcame with card for drivers eventhough windows might have drivers for the card.
If that does not work try this-
1. Open control panel and open the multimedia applet.
2. Select devices tab and make sure you card is listed if not, click on add select unlisted to pull driver from the disk that came with the card.

Have you tried changing your Windows Startup Sound? The .WAV file might be corrupt, or you might be running too low on RAM to run it.

I finally fixed the problem thank you for your answers which I did all of that already about 5 times each. The problem was that I had 2 cd rom burners in my machine. So I guess it got confussed or something. When I put the 2nd cdrom drive I already had windows 98 installed and it worked fine. Then when I got the virus I tried to install windows 98 with both of them installed from the start of the install. Thanks again for answering my question.
