I don't know what's up with this onboard sound. I upgraded from Celeron533 /w noname board(onboard sound,too) and I never had this problem before. Onboard sound works perfectly in Win98SE, but in DOS mode there is no sound. I setup all the parameter correctly: I turned Legacy sound & SB emulation in BIOS and had 'viasound.com' &'set blaster= blah' in autoexec. Funny thing is I got sound in first few days but not anymore after that!!! I haven't changed anything. I even changed all settting back to 'failsafe setting' in BIOS without any overclocking but sound is no more in DOS. In win98se it stil works fine. Anyone has similiar problem? I almost give up and looking for SB Live value
