I have problem with my new computer when playing the CD music.
Every time i listen to the CD on my computer, it first works normally
but after some time it will restart itself or will be totally dead,
otherwise it will say:

"OE error at 0028:c107B722 of VxD ESDI_506(01) + 00000DE3E..."

and close the CDPlayer task.
If I go to the Control Panel | Multimedia | Advanced,
it will say:
  "Error when running C:\Windows\system\mmsys.cpl"
and then quit

I compared the mmsys.cpl with other computer's, they are the same!
The SB card and other cards are PnP and were setup automatically.
My new computer's brand is NEWTEC , the hardware is:
 5T2P4 Main Board ,Pemtium 200M , 32M EDO RAM , Sound Blaster AWE32,
 Pioneer CDROM DR-A12X(Connected to IDE slot) , S3 Inc. ViRGE PCI Video Adaptor ,
 Adaptec AHA-2940U/AHA-2940UW/AHA-2940/AHA-2940W PCI SCSI Controller etc.

And I am  sure there is no RAM , I/O , INTR and DMA conflict.
Any idea what's happening?
Tnanks in advance.

1. The latest AWE32 drivers were published 12/19/96, and can be downloaded from
ftp://ftp.creaf.com/pub/creative/drivers/sb16awe/sbw95up.exe

2. Don't be so sure there isn't an IRQ conflict.  It took us over 6 months to realize that (750!) notebooks shipped to us had their NICS (3C589B) set to IRQ5 which conflicted with the Infra Red port which we ended up disableing.  Win95 reassigned the IRQ on the NIC card, but since the card was "burned" at IRQ5, the conflict persisted (all other IRQ's the IR port could use were also taken).  When we reset the card to an unused IRQ, everything fell into place.  Boot clean (Shift F5), and run diagnostics / configuration utilities to be sure that cards are set where Win95 wants them (don't bother trying to fight Win95 - it's much easier to reset the cards!).

Hope this helps.

Jerry
