sound card mess
Posted on 1998-10-07
I'll try to explain this the best I can. I installed windows 98 on my wife's Maximus 166. Everything went smooth except the sound card. I don't really know what sound card it is. And addonics driver came with the system. Windows 98 did not detect the sound card. I somehow managed to get I guess part of it installed with add new hardware, finally manually choosing from a list that windows finally provided. It found a Legacy board and installed its drivers for that and during restart, I saw windows finding and loading all sorts of Yamaha stuff. So now in device manager, I have Yamaha drivers (except a wave driver, which windows 98 said it didn't have in its database) and a legacy board? taking irq's 5 and 9 I believe. And there is no sound at all... what to do? I ordered a sound blaster because I'm so tired of messing with this... it looks as though this Yamaha should play everything but waves...
