Probably a driver probelm... Might want to check with the manufature of your Mobo (onboard sound) or Sound card, for the latest XP drivers.

Seems to be a problem with onboard sound more then a real sound card, but it's known to happen...

The problem definetly seems to be with the drivers.
Do u have a onboard sound card or separate.
Try reinstalling the sound card, or download the latest drivers from the internet.

I have had the same problem and was that in the bios it had the onboard sound turned off. You may have to reload the sound card drivers or go into sounds in control panel to see if it even sees the sound card. You can look in device manager also to see if it sees the sound card installed.

what you might want to do before you reinstall the driver is make sure that the old driver is uninstalled then reinstall.

An SB live is actually autodetected fine on Xp ..
Check if there's any conflict or any coruppted drivers ..
Try changing the PCI slot on which the card is .
