Conflicts

Hello

I have a NIC which was working just fine under IRQ 5 and IO address 320.

I have installed a Creative SB (CT2770) and Windows found it under IRQ 10 and IO Address 220 and 338.

Windows finds no conflicts.

Now the SB works and the NIC does not.
If I pull out the SB then the NIC will work.

Any ideas what to do?

The nic needs to have 20 bytes of i/o and you are only giving it 18 your nic is at 320 and sound at 338 Change the i/o of the nic to 300 and give it a shot. You will also have change it in device manager to reflect the change to the card.  This is the only possible place that your conflict can take place. Also make sure you go into bios and make irq available to isa and not pnp.
If your card is set to use pnp disable it and assign static values to it.

This is an old 486 ... It does not support P&P :-)

I will search for the card's config program and try it...

Thanks,
Saar

Also, if the NIC can be re-configured, try a different IRQ.
The soundcard wants IRQ5 to make it compatible with Dos programs that may try to use it.
You may find an envirnment setting in your autoexec.bat file that can be changed.

Try to set the NIC card to IRQ9 and Sound card for IRQ5.

Changing the IO Address was the solution.

Thanks.
