I just upgraded from win ME to XP.
A sound blaster live 5.1 card is installed.
Prior to upgrade installation ran the compatability check. As you can guess I was informed that 5.1 was not fully compatable.
Did the installation, downloaded the new driver package (25mb!) and ran the install program.
After reboot, no sound.
Re-installed from the initial disk and had sound but during shutdown told "DEVLDR not responding"
Went to microsoft help and told to uninstall the driver and then reinstall from the windows disk.
Did this and you guessed it - no sound!
Reinstalled from the original, got sound but also the message again.
I am going around in circles and getting more confused after each circuit.
I must be doing something wrong but this one has got me beat.
Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks for the welcome TW56.

Thanks for the link. Went there before and yet to try the suggestions.

The problem is on a friends computer...and I did the install.
He is not too computer literate so this may take some time as we will have to do everthing via the phone.

If there are any more ideas out there I am all ears.

I also did a google search and it is obvious to me that this is a very common problem. Unfortunately not many solutions. Found this site, was impressed and hence the posting.

Hi olderairhead,
Sorry about taking so long to reply. Try going here . Make sure you download the most current driver for that card and XP. Then completely remove the card from device manager and any other entries in program files for that card also. Reboot if windows picks it up dont let windows install the drivers . Cancel, look in device manager and see if the card is there. right click it and select properties. Then drivers and update driver. Lookfor the driver you downloaded and install it. If sound shows a yellow ! right click then add the card and driver from there. I will stay closer in touch this evening.
