Do you have a DELL Computer ?

The SB Live! Card has an EMU10k Chip.The SB Live! Value Card (usually DELL ships) has not the same chipset.
Since your Card is reported as EMU10Kx I am pretty sure that it's a vlaue card.

The "normal" SB Live is reported with EMU10K, without the X.

Unfortunately this card is on ALSA's Blacklist. So there isn't an ALSA driver for it.

There were some commercial OSS Drivers for that card for Linux, but after figuring
out how much the driver would cost, it would be cheaper for you to buy
a standard SB Live! Card. This card works very good.

Well I do not know if the ALSA Project plans support and when and if it will be available.
I decided to buy a new one.

DELL is, from the legal perspective, clean. They support the card with the OS they deliver,
which is Windows XP. The Value Card works only with XP. I do not know if it will
also be supported with Longhorn or not.

Since it's a new computer you may contact DELL asking them to replace your card or
at least take it back and give you money back.
