    After using Win98 for a few weeks, I decided to reload my Soundblaster PCI512 driver and software (Creative,Unreal,& Half-life) which I had used with Win95. A message showed the driver was different from the current driver and recommended I use the old driver which I did. I think that was the wrong choice.
    My computer locked up and I had to reinstall Win98 several times with the result of Blue Screen each time after starting windows.
    I removed the Soundblaster PCI512 card, reinstalled Win98 and it's up and running now, but I'm afraid to plug in the soundblaster again. The PCI512 should be compatable with Win98. Will the latest driver fix the problem?

    Could use a little more information on your system but There were some issues with the older Soundblaster drivers and Pentium 3's.. Blue screens were pretty common with Live wire 1.. It was corrected in the later versions of drivers...
