If you browse or search this forum, you will find hundreds of threads about problems with SB live. Maybe you can find a solution there.

Sharing an IRQ with the IRQ holder for PCI steering normally doesn't cause problems.
What IRQs do you sound- and videocard use?
It never rains but it pours...

Yo might want to give us more information about the system.
What does "nothing happens" mean?
What OS do you use?
Is the system booting properly?
Did you check the device manager for IRQ...

Open the device manager, highlight the SB16 emulation, choose properties and check Disable in this Hardware profile. Then reboot.

If you're using Win98, it looks like you made one false click.
You say Browse for driver and point to the folder where you extracted the driver files to. Then, IMPORTANT, Windows will show a dialog...

Here's the same prob with a video card (from MS knowledge base):
Try to move the card to a different slot.

You said you moved the card to another slot, so did you check the device manager for resource conflicts before and after?
I like beers. Cheers!

That's not true.
Did you follow the procedure I described step by step?

Do you also use a PCI gfx-card?

There can be only one!

Sounds like your installation procedure is wrong. My suggestion:
-Extract the driver files to a new directory of your choice, not Windows!
-Delete the sound device in the device manager and reboot...

Have a look into system control panel->multimedia. There you will find a volume control for different types of media. Check CD-Audio there, maybe its muted.
Well now, who are...

Look, I think I found it here: There it is, LWHA411G7 (XWave 3000).
Great to hear (or read) someone says I'm the best! Doesn't happen to often! http://discussions.hardwarecentral.com/biggrin.gif

If you haven't already done that:
Check DX Diagnostics -> DirectSound ->Test.
Check System Control Panel->Multimedia: the playback devices for the different media types, and try different settings....

Yes, I agree with Salmoneus,
get PCI sound; there are many affordable cards, but I can't tell you which one to buy.
August 7th, 2000, 03:14 PM
I've done some research. Yamaha is selling this QS300A brand. They haven't got drivers because it's an XWave chip from LabWay.
Labway's drivers for the different XWave chips are found here...

On board sound is ISA and costs performance. Most PCI sound cards offer some hardware acceleration for DirectSound and D3DSound. Also using the PCI bus spares the CPU from having to handle all the...

Could be a game/hardware incompatibility (->patch?) or a game konfiguration issue. I had lots of D3D message boxes (Create "whatever" failed...) in Unreal->back to desktop. I had to change a...

In your windows\system directory there should be a dxdiag.exe. When you start it, there are several tabs, one of them Sound.
It has a button: Test DirectSound. I guess at least one test will fail,...

Welcome to HWC!
A few questions:
Does it also happen in other games?
Did you just try to load the new drivers or did you actually successfully install them?
Do you already have DirextX 7.0a?
August 2nd, 2000, 02:40 PM
I'd like to add this, because it seems I didn't read your last statement thoroughly:
The "driver not found" message is shown when you point to the wrong directory on the CD. It has to...
August 2nd, 2000, 02:15 PM
Yor best bet would be to take a look at the card and identify the sound processing chip (usually the biggest one). Ther should be a name and a number on it.
Then visit WinDrivers, they have drivers...
