E-Machines 4020 and Soundblaster Live! card ??

.all i was getting was a message saying there was a "checksum error".....it would then start up ok SOMETIMES.....but other times it wouldnt start up AT ALL.

this is usually due to a flat CMOS battery but a 6 month old PC should not have a flat batery.

until i installed the Soundblaster Live card....after installing it, it would restart fine..

Why install the card hafter you have installed windows (or am I reading this wrong?)

Fit the card, Boot into dBIOS and disable any ONboard sound (to stop conflicts).

Boot from XP CD and run windows setup, format the partion and reinstall windows, it should find appropriate divers for your card
