Network Card In Compaq Presario 7180

I am installing a network card in a Presario 7180 with Windows 95. The Windows Device Manager and WinCheckIt Pro both report no conflict when the card is set to IRQ 10 and I/O of 0340, however when the computer is booted, the "start windows" noise gets stuck, similar to when a record skips and repeats, only more rapidly, and the Compaq Operator reports errors in opening the communications device. As soon as the card is removed, the problem with the sound goes away, and the Compaq Operator error gets intermittent, and when the device is removed from the Windows Device Manager, the problem totally goes away. So the network card is affecting at least the sound card, and possible the modem. The network card is a CE model AK-2000P Plug and play, full-duplex NE2000 adapter for an ISA slot.

Is there anything else I can try with this card? Or do you recommend a different card? Am I forced to use Compaq products? Thank you for your help.

Blake,

I just checked my settings, because I'm running a Creative Labs SoundBlaster AWE32, with a CD-ROM and a Cabletron NIC.

My sound board is using IRQ 10, DMA 1 & 7, and ports 240-24F, 300-301, & 388-38B.  Your problem may be an IRQ conflict after all.  I know I went NUTS before I got these things to run together in Win95.

Try setting your board to IRQ 11, DMA 5, and I/O Ports 220-237.  See if this helps.

Good Luck!
