  1. I have a sound blaster live 5.1 digital everytime i use it my pc would lock up after a few hours etc this only happens when i put the sound card in...i also tried disableing my onboard sound and still have this problem...

    i am running

    windows xp sp2 pro

    2 gig ram ddr

    psu-450 wats

    intel pentium 4 3.2 ghz hyprer threading...

    Remove the Soundblaster card and try only the onboard audio. See what happens.

    Good luck! :wave:

    Download the latest drivers for the soundblaster. They can solve many problems.
