Win95 Lock up after moving PCI slots.
Posted on 1998-04-27
I installed a new Diamond Monster 3d II card in my system. In the process I moved the existing Diamond Stealth 2000 from PCI slot 2 to PCI slot 3. The monster card is installed in PCI slot 1. It only seems to want to work in the original slot 2. The error message that comes up is mmsound.drv not installed and then the shut down message appears. I had this problem until I install the newer Diamond driver. Default drive on Win95 CD does not work.
My system is a FIC PA2007, K6 200, 64MB, 2.5GB HD, 1.6GB HD, Maxtech 56K Modem.
The only PCI Cards are Diamond Steath 2000 and Monster 3D II.
The question is: why when I move my video card from one PCI slot to another does the system crash? When I moved my video card from slot 2 to slot 3 I received the mmsound.drv not installed error and the system shuts down.
