Use of sound card causing crashes

Use of sound card causing crashes

Post by John Wilso » Sat, 24 Apr 2004 12:02:47

Im am not sure if this is the correct forum but here goes

Any program that uses the onboard sound card sooner or later crashes win98
and a hard reboot is the only way to get going again. Flash player does not
seem to cause this trouble.

This is what I have

1. IEEE 1394 Card causes loss of internet connection and disables sound card

2. Having issues using onboard sound+sound card

I have been using onboard sound (AC97) for a few months without a problem.
Yesterday, I picked up a sound card and installed it, wanting to have both
the onboard and the sound card work at the same time. I'm currently doing
this type of thing on another PC I have.

However, when I install the PCI card, my onboard sound is no longer
accessible, even though its still listed as Enabled in the BIOS. When I
remove/uninstall the PCI card, the onboard shows up again and works again.

It seems that I can only have 1 sound source on my PC! However, I have both
of them setup fine on my other PC.

Both PCs are running WinXP Pro with SP2 and all major updates done.
The PC with the problem is:
AMD Athlon64
1024 PC3200 ram
Asus K8VSE Delux motherboard
the new PCI card being installed is a C-Media card, very basic.

I have searched all over and cannot find a way to get it to work. Is there
some sort of flag/setting I need to do to allow me to use two sound sources
at once??

Many many thanks!
