I've got a Creative Labs PCI64 Sound card and have recently changed my operating system from Windows98 to Windows2000. However, my drivers for my sound card don't work on Windows 2000!

I've downloaded the files from
and installed them, but they don't seem to have done anything at all.
Certainly, the yellow exclaimation mark in the Device manager under "Multimedia Audio device" is still there.

The readme file recommends playing around with the BIOS.
From the PNP/PCI Configuration Setup, I've got the options:
PNP OS Installed: Yes
Resources controlled by: Auto
Reset Configuration Data: Disabled
Assign IRQ for USB: Enabled

So, if I change the "Resources controlled by" setting to Manual, a set of IRQ and DMA options appear. All are set to "PCI/ISA PnP". The only option I can change any of these to is "Legacy ISA".
Additionally, the option "Used MEM base addr" appears. This is defaulted to N/A, and the options that I have are C800, CC00, D000, D400, D800, DC00.
Within my BIOS Features setup, I notice that I have the some similar options set to Disabled e.g. c8000-c8FFF Shadow

Any ideas as to what I can do to get my sound card working?
Any relevant url's that you could point me towards?

Many thanks in advance,
