No sound/music: Duke Nukem 3D Shareware version

I have an NEC 90 Pentium sys with a Boca Research SE1440
sound/fax/modem board.  I cannot get the music/sounds to
work in the game and have tried all that Duke's web page
suggested in the way of changing env vars, etc.  I believe
this card emulates a Sound Blaster, but I still can't get it
to work.  Any ideas?  Thx in advance.  John

Hi
First you should check if all the drivers are loaded on the dos startup (on the config.sys and autoexec.bat). If they're not try to install them from the installation disks you should have gotten with your computer.
If your drivers load on startup they should display the configuration for your card on every startup, if they do, write the stuff down (irq, dma...) and configure it in the duke setup.
Your modem is an old model, and usually those cards are Sound Blaster Pro Compatible, so in the duke setup choose a sound blaster pro.

Good Luck

I am somewhat dissatisfied with this answer since I don't have
any idea as to which drivers to look for.  Help!

If you feel comfortable doing your own maintenance, take off the cover and look for a cd-type audio cable, since this is a integrated board-the phone and other subsystems on the card may be interferring in the detect mode of D3d. Try the Boca web site for any updated drivers. But unhook the cable if there is one. You may have one of the few cards that are not actually sound blaster compatible (despite what the manafacturer say's). Verify your adresses, I.e, Inetrupt 5 , DMA1 for low, maybe DMA5 or 7 for High. If you did this then I would see if you can borrow a friends card-preferably sound blaster and try it, if it works then your card is the culprit-i fit doesn't and you loaded the drivers then its time to look at a deeper problem. Duke does not give you a great latitude of sound cards to choose from
