  1. Hello!
    I have this problem with my soundblaster live...
    About 4 days ago my computer crashed and I had to push the reset button. after it rebooted my sound did no longer work. Now, i've had this problem before. about a month ago, but it just started working again out of nowhere after 2 weeks or so. My pc will no longer detect my soundcard, but it worked fine a week ago... I rebooted my system to a saved backup dating 7 december. when it worked fine... but it didn't help. I tried downloading new drivers, but they won't install becouse they can't detect my soundcard.
    I'm really desperate... I've searched every forum and every helpfile possible. Thing is, im not the most advanced computer user, so most of the computer terms are gibberish to me...
    Anyways, I hope some knows this problem and what to do about it. Would deffinetly appreciate the help! :giddy:

    Could it be that your sound card just died?

    Try it in another computer or at least in another PCI slot.

    I did try to put it into another pci slot... but that didnt make any difference. Im almost sure it didnt die, because i've had this problem before...
    I hope it didn't die :(
