The two cards may be interfering one with the other. Enter control panel > system > device manger. In "sound video and game controller: disable ac97 temporarilly and see if tit makes any difference.

I assume after I disable it I can re-enable it. I'd hate to lose what I do have now. The Sound Blaster Live has never shown up in the device manager. The 2 times that I have had to computer to the tech I have told him about my concern (not seeing SB Live) he acted surprised and said he would correct that. I can see where he tried, I found a driver file for SB Live in,
LiveDrvUni-pack(ENG).exe, in folder C:\driver dated the day he had the computer. So I assume he did something with it. I wonder if I should try and run it myself? The driver file for C-Media, cmedia973x.zip is also in that folder????

I will try disabling the C-Media and see what happens....

It should only install from a Liveware 3.0 CD

There is a lot of other software on there which goes with your soundcard, if you do install it from a Liveware 3.0 CD then it should disable the onboard sound
