in windows 95, control panel, under systems device manager,there appears to be a compatability issue with MEDIA VISION SOUND BLASTER
 I looked in the driver section but in windows 95, control panel, under systems device manager,there appears to be a conflict....
I have looked for MEDIA VISION but I cant find them or get an updated driver to remove the conflict...
Where can I find a driver or what do i do to resolve the conflict?

Is it a IRQ or DMA confilict? If yes, then go to the resources TAB of that device and disable automatic settings. Then manually set the resources again until no conflicts arises.

If it is the IRQ conflicts, check for IRQ 5 and 7, which is the most  commonly used IRQ for Sound Blaster Emulation device.

Tell us more about the devices conflicting.

Go to www.windrivers.com.  They have drivers for Media Vision products.  You can direct link to:

http://www.windrivers.com/company/mediavis/index.htm

and the drivers & instructions should be there.  Good luck.

BTW the above comment is correct.  If it is not a lack of drivers, but a conflict you can resolve it in the Control Panel's Device manager by double clicking on the computer icon and then seeing which devices are using the same IRQ or DMA.

Gentlemen:
 First of all thank you for the advice!!!.
Long story short, and I will dispense with the vulgarities uttered to my KNOW IT ALL NEIGHBOR" Who, without my consent, installed an additional driver called MEDIA VISION PRO/PREMIER3D " JUST TO REMOVE THE CONFLICT:"

STATUS:
Under Control panel, system, device manager under SOUND, VIDEO AND GAME CONTROLERS. The following is found:
      Game port and joy stick
      MEDIA Vision ProAudio spectrum 16/plus/studio audio
             on Irq 12
      MEDIA Vision ProAudio spectrum 16/studio with scsi
            on Irq 9
   !      Media vision pro/prem3d  cant find irq's on this one now


the windows message says- DEVICE FAILURE TRY CHANGING DRIVERS FOR THIS DEVICE…. Code 17 (DON'T KNOW WHAT THIS MEANS)
 However the first two media vision appear to have no conflicts (windows message)
BUT NOW MY SYSTEM HANGS UP ( stalls) BECAUSE OF THE ADDED DRIVER
How do I remove this unwanted driver… and please remember that I am pretty dumb about this alsoo  in device usage there are two boxes   one says exists in all hardward   the other says ( I believe) delete   any and all HELP IS REALLY NEEDED AND APPRECIATED
Thank you
