    I'm not familiar with the Soundblaster Live! 1024, but it sounds like you got a shared IRQ with the Voodoo. You could try moving the Live! to another PCI slot. If the Live! is ISA (doubtful!), make sure you know what it's IRQ is, and make sure no other component shares it.<P>Now, if the Voodoo is PCI (or, not AGP) put it in PCI slot 1, closest to the CPU. Now, you can put the sound card in PCI slot 2 and everything should be OK.<P>Hope that helps, my dude!<P>BM
