View Full Version : (Repeating) Sound Card...HELP!!!

25-03-2002, 01:15 AM
I have recentlyre-installed my (Win98) machine from scratch, and now have this iritating problem with my sound card. It works fine, until I do anything that makes a sound, at which point, all I get is a rapidly repeating sound, much like a stuck CD...

I have tracked down the most up to date drivers for my ES1938 sound card, pulled it out, re-installed it, changed it from one slot to another, but still nothing will stop this infernal noise...! Someone please help me before I cover it in lighter fluid and have a sacrificial burning...!!

Many Thanks

Sounds like the sound card is conflicting with another piece of hardware. Check in the Device Manager to make sure it has its own IRQ etc

Chances are it's been allocated IRQ9 (shared with ACPI) - this will cause it grief. Force it to another IRQ with device manager (usually sound cards can share an IRQ (but not IRQ9) with other devices).
