What happened to the onboard sound? Did you disable it or what? To me, it sounds like they are conflicting or something is wrong with the microphone.

Just mute the sound in your audio settings. The mic should still work ingame even if it is muted through the audio settings. Trust me.

Do this:

First, make sure you have the latest drivers from Creative's web site for the SB Live.

Now, follow these instructions: Go into your windows volume settings by either accessing them through the control panel or double clicking the speaker icon in your taskbar. Do the following: Click Options > Properties > Check the Recording box > Click OK at the bottom > Make sure the box is checked to select the Microphone

NOW you should be able to mute the microphone under the playback (as opposed to recording) settings and not have any feedback or be able to hear yourself (and people in CS:S should be able to hear you too!). You can always test these settings using the stupid Windows Audio Recorder (under Start > Accessories > Entertainment > Sound Recorder).

I was having the same problem on my SoundBlaster X-Fi Gamer card.

I had to change the input from mic to S/PDIF-In, which I think is the digital input.

Using the windows sound properties settings:

Control Panel > Sound > Speakers > Click the Properties button

Select the levels tab

Unmute the S/PDIF-In (I have mine at 100%)

Mute the microphone (You might need to use the scroll bar at the right, if it is seen, and scroll down to microphone)

Now my mic works, and the feedback is gone! It was driving me nuts.

If you are still having this problem.. i know it's a late answer but go to "speakers" on you task bar and go to "sounds" go to whatever speaker/headphones you got, go to properties and up at the top it should be something like "sound levels" go there and turn your microphone down. :)
