You could have a ghost device in the system. Remove the card and start the computer in safe mode. Look at the device manager to see if there are any sound devices detected. If so, delete them. Now install the card and let Windows detect it. You probably left the card in the machine when reinstalling the O/S. You shouldn't have any peripheral devices hooked up when doing a reinstall of Windows XP.

Install Sound Blaster Live Card

Is the Soundcard already in the PC at the moment?
If you need help putting it in, let me know.

Here's an overview of driver for Windows 98. When the card is inserted in one of the PCI expansion slots you must install it's drivers. Windows will probably detect the card but doesn't know how to control it.

Here's the link I promised above:
[SoundBlaster Live! Platinum 5.1 Drivers and Software]

I hope this helps, need more help. Let me know.
Please rate.
