Replaced MB for other problems, everything working OK except
AWE64 sound card, audio devices "disappears" from control panal (and little speaker in taskbar) with restart, shift restart, even with reset button. There's nothing in my config.sys or autoexec.bat except:
SET MIDI=SYNTH:1 MAP:E MODE:0
SET BLASTER=A220 I5 D1 H5 P330 E620 T6
which the reinstallation of the sound drivers created.
In the multimedia properties section, the AUDIO is greyed
out with "no playback devices" showing in preferred device.
Under MIDI, I show the MIDI mapper, and WaveSynth/WG MIDI but not the other two synths that are usually there. Under advanced, there are no conflicts, it's just gone. If I shut
down, wait a minute, then startup, it's back and works fine.
Anyone got a clue?
