Do Window programs understand that the sb exists, or does no sound exist for your window programs too?  Also, go to Control Panel/System/Device Manager, and see if the sb's properties are conflicting with another device's properties.

Let me know how it goes...

OK. In window's Control Panel, click on Add New Hardware.  Don't do the automatic detect, step through it, and when it asks for the drivers, slap the disk in that came with the sb.  See if that solves your problem.

Let me know how it goes!  Thanks!  :)

hey dima_sherman does your device manager have the card listed as  ?OTHER.  Also, the part where the computer counts the memory is the PNP bios, not the OS.

you have to get rid of all entries concerning sound in the following files:

autoexec.bat (you do not need this file anyway in Win95)
config.sys (same as above)
win.ini (you need that only for compatability with 16-Bit-programmes)
system.ini (dito)

go to control panel|system|device manager and delete the all sound-devices from the hardware-configuration

reboot

reinstall the software that shipped with the card.
