|My link in response 3 doesn't work properly.|
The driver download you need is hidden deep within the Creative Support site. It takes about 5-6 steps to get to it. Click HERE, then scroll to the bottom of the page & click where it says, "If your product is not listed above, please click here".
You'll find the driver under Live! > Archived Products > SoundBlaster Live! Value > Driver > Sound Blaster Live! - LiveDrvUni-Pack (English)
There is no way that I can see to check the current driver version so I don't know where you went to have it checked? All I can suggest to you is to download & install/reinstall the driver.
If I had seen Dell Dimension 8300, I could have just told you to CLICK HERE ....lol
