    WinME 4.90.3000

    Onboard sound disabled
    DirectX 9.0C
    IE 6.0 SP1

    I can't get my Soundblaster Live! 24 bit drivers to stick. When I run the installation disk, I have sound when the installation is complete, but upon re-booting no sound available.
    Devices are listed in the device manager, "this device is working properly",
    however I can't select it as a playback/record device in the multimedia tab, everything is greyed out-it's listed as a device with no problems, but I can't select it.

    If I run the "update driver" from the control panel->system->device manager->sound/video/game controllers->SB Live! 24 bit->properties->update driver, it says "found updated driver" and proceeds to re-load the drivers from the cd

    Drive was clean installed approx 2 weeks ago.
    No updates showing required.
    Ran AVGFree with latest defs as well as Spybot,Spywareguared,Spywareblaster.
    No other sound drivers on drive at all.
    Tried removing/re-installing driver,
    Tried Installing with Spyblaster & other AV turned off,
    Tried installing in safe mode,
    Ran DH Drive cleaner to remove misc files not un-installed,
    Tried changing PCI slot (tried all avail slots),
    Bios is set for non-pnp OS, update ESCD,
    Irq 5 (sb emulation irq) reserved for ISA,
    Have VIA Hyperion Pro 5.07,
    and getting nowhere.
