    Have you tried uninstalling it and restarting the computer and let it reinstall?

    Is it an OEM card? Whats the model #(in the upper right side of the card). Most of the SB Live Digital cards were for Dells only. When creative makes OEM cards they leave out certain hardware identifiers so that drivers from Creatives site wont recognize the card as a Creative. That way they wont have to provide support for cards they make for other venders like Dell and Gateway. I got this straight from Creative tech support when I bought an OEM card. If its OEM, you'll need a driver for the specific model, such as SB0020.

    Do a Google search for the model number to find a driver.

    The drivers on Creatives site wont work with any OEM card, only retail cards.
