I have an older SB Live! 5.1 card (model SB0060) and couldn't get the sound to work. Ran the driver in compatibility mode for WinXP SP3, and as admin, and it installed fine, when I played music the lvels were going up/down... but no sound from my speakers (and yes, everything connected just fine). Tried downloading newer drivers and same deal so gave up. Pulled the card out and enabled the onboard card for my Asus P4P800 Intel P865PE (AC97 2.3 compatible / AI Audio via 8-Channel CODEC). Turned the computer on, couldn't install or find a driver. I pointed it to the original install CD for the board and couldn't install the drivers. So... downloaded the latest Win7 compatible AC97 drivers from Realtek. Same thing... installed, says it's fine, levels go up/down on the volume yet I get no sound. I have my audio running through a receiver... so, the SB Live! card was running though digital, and the onboard card I now have running through regular stereo now. If I plug the jack into my MP3 player I get sound so, not the speakers or the reciever. Any ideas? The fact that both cards installed and say working properly, the levels show sound but no audio happenind is odd. ***System Summary*** OS Name Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate Version 6.1.7100 Build 7100 Other OS Description Not Available OS Manufacturer Microsoft Corporation System Name N/A System Manufacturer To Be Filled By O.E.M.
