Sound Blaster Live! 5.1 hardware issue!!!
okay, i recently (around 4 months, been to busy to put it in) purchased a SB Live! 5.1 sound card. After installation and a reboot, the computer goes extremely slow... I have a 1.4 Celeron, 1024 MB RAM, oodles of harddrive space. Yeah, it's an old school rig... lol Anyway, the computer goes slow as **** when I open differenty application (ex. I.E. or Firefox, Winamp... etc...). THe most annoying thing is when I scroll with my mouse, the speakers squeal. I went to Creative's website to download an updated driver BUT after I download the installer, it says there is no Creative device installed on the computer, which I don't understand. Everything is installed correctly. Any advice??? Thanks in advance!
