I have a packard bell multimedia c110 (pentium 120, 80 MB RAM). It was a factory installed win-95 machine with mutimedia (recording and playing). Last week, I installed
NT on this pc, everything works fine except, sound.
when I go to control panel, multimedia, drivers, I see nothing installed, so i tried to add what i had in my other
computer, (ctystalware audio) it asked for dll's etc, i copied them but it reperted it could not detect the hardware
then i asked the pakardbell abaout my sound system, they said i have pacardbell sound2, equivalent to sound blaster pro (azt2316r, aztech labs.) so how should i install my driver so that my audio works.

If so, goto Control Panel/Media Device, add a device, select Soundblaster 16 with its default setting, restart system. That should be OK. Try it and let me know how it goes.

You dont have NT CD-ROM? Or you install NT from network? All the files you mentioned should be automatically copied from NT CD-ROM or the network path where NT installed from.

yes I have original ms windowsNT workstation CD rom, and when
put the disk in the main splash screen, it has a add/remove
software button, then it gives a two tab dialog(install/uninstall and windows nt setup) at set up, it has multimedia checked with gray box, saying 5 out of 9 components installed, details button shows (cd player, media player, sample sounds, sound recorder, volume control) but i assume all these
can work if the sound card driver that i should install
works ?????, and as far as sndblst.dll yes i see it in the i386
dir as sndblst.dl_ and when i tried to install it,
i needed to change the inturrupt to 5 from 7, now i will try

yes it works, he reason that i had all this mess was,
i added a zip drive, that shifted my cd to drive f:
from drive e: and i did not notice that it was tring to load
from my zip instead of nt cd disk, now all works, thanks for the effort. i wonder why any one should need this aztech labs
nt driver for this packed bell sound system ? any way
