    No sound with Vista 64bit and Audigy SE

    I am experiencing what seems to be a common problem, but am opening a new post on the chance that I have missed something in the other posts that I've read. I am running Vista 64 bit Home premium and have an Audigy SE sound card installed. Suddenly, after a reboot, I have no sound at all. The system recognizes the sound card and the system information on it follows --
    Name SB Audigy
    Manufacturer Creative Technology Ltd.
    Status OK
    PNP Device ID PCI\VEN_1102&DEV_0007&SUBSYS_100A1102&REV_00\4&237A0637&0&10F0
    I/O Port 0x0000EC00-0x0000EC1F
    IRQ Channel IRQ 19
    Driver c:\windows\system32\drivers\p17.sys (, 1.25 MB (1,309,696 bytes), 10/16/2009 7:44 AM)
    The device was uninstalled and reinstalled, with the same driver, but there is still no sound at all - not only will it not play an MP3 file, but there are no system sounds either. Dual boot is set up and sound works fine under suse. If a song is played, the volume mixer shows activity and if I test the speakers from Device Manager, it also shows activity. I just don't get any sound.
    I have the onboard sound disabled and have deselected the option that allows an application to take exclusive control of the device.
    Thanks in advance,
