device manager, properties, resources losing values

Ok.. I installed a new pci sound card, which using the settings win95 gives it, it won't work (spent 45 minutes on the phone with the sound card tech support folks and they had no clue why) ... going into device manager, properties, resources (for the card, not the entire system) -
it won't let me change the IRQ - changing the I/O's makes the sound card work beautifully -- but as soon as I reboot my system, the old values are put back into the resources box, forcing me to go in and fix it all manually again...

how can I get these values to stay through a reboot so I can finally hear my start-up wav again?

TIA

Try checking your Bios settings as it delivers IRQ do PCI devices. Usually it gives an IRQ to a specific PCI slot.
Else what hardware do you have.
Computer?
Soundcard?
Other plug in devices? (And what resources does it use)

Well, it didn't work.
Sorry it's taken me so long to grade you, but in the midst of the sound card problems, some other (computer) issues reared their ugly heads, and I ended up reformatting my harddrive and starting over from scratch.

I was able to try your suggestion first, before the reformat, but it didn't work for me.  Maybe because of the other problems I had going on and didn't yet know about?  I don't know.  

I've had a hard time deciding (since your answer didn't work for me) whether to give you a good grade but decrease the amount of points, or keep the points and give you a mediocre grade.  Rejecting your answer wouldn't do much good, as with the reformat and total new installation of everything, the sound card is now working (as are all of my other devices).

Rather than keep you waiting any longer.. here it is.. a C (you probably deserve more) and an additional 20 points for your time and trouble.

Thanks again...
