I've had probs with my sound card - it plays very very very quietly (can only hear with ear pressed up right to speaker!) even though everythin is turned up to maximum. I had AWE32, swapped with SB Live from another PC - still not working. Swapped graphics card to one from other PC that I know work together. Have replaced motherboard & same prob. No on-board sound or graphics - now using Gigabyte GA586HX.
Running on Win98 - doesn't say it's SE but USB card works. P200MMX processor & 112Mb RAM.
