Soundblaster Vs ATI Video Card

By ballardde ·
I have an ATI All-In-Wonder video card, tv receiver on board. I can't install the drivers for this card and my Soundblaster Live 5.1 software at the same time - it crashes. I can install one or the other, but not both. If I install just the drivers for the sound card all is well, but can't install any of the Soundblaster applications - I've tried them one by one. Any ideas?

with the Radeon AIW. It's great. Duron @900, 256 mb, TV on Demand, one button recording,
Macrovision free Hollywood plus DVD I love it.
I started with a SB Live 5.1 tried everything and contacted tech support a lot.
I finally got it to work somewhat, but the TV on Demand still had inferior sound, and I like to pause live TV a lot, so this is unacceptable. It is well documented, this conflict with SB and AIW, although not all that well on either manufacturers website.
My final solution? A Turtle Beach card. Works great. Sounds great in 5x100w Surround. Better than the Theater, it is :)
I bought mine on sale pretty cheap. It was well worth it.
