PNP modem and PNP soundcard conflict
Posted on 1997-03-15
I have an IBM PS/1 486 computer with a non-plug n play BIOS. I have installed an Orchid NuSound 32 PnP and a Zoom 33.6 Comstar PnP modem. I have installed both of them and verified that they both work. Every time I boot up the computer from a power-down, I get an ADD New Hardware Wizard message saying something like (It changes every time):
New Hardware Found----- Joom F.2% #jo$%$
If I click CANCEL, goto Device Manager, and click REFRESH, The modem and soundcard will be recognized and their drivers will be automatically loaded. Everything will work fine and dandy until I ShutDown and turn off the power
However, If I shut down and press CTRL-ALT-DELETE, the system will reboot and Win95 will boot up properly, loading the drivers on bootup.
I need a way to set Win95 so it automatically loads everything properly off of a cold boot. I need this information immediately.
I have been told to change the I/O PnP read Port Settings to another I/O address, but that hasn't worked. Also I cannot override the PNP on either of these cards using jumpers.
