I would make sure you have the latest drivers for the sound card. If it just won't work with the Dragon software, you should be able to disable the sound chip in the bios and install a compatible card - basic sound cards are about $15 these days.

will check on latest sound card drivers, unwilling to disable sound chip in BIOs, problem is: when loading "DNS" software message appears, "sys error", where can I download latest drivers or patches for crystal?

Crystal? if that is the biggest chip on the board rather than what it detects as, i presume You have an aztech based soundcard for which drivers are available online. Although if it is a problem with needing full duplex (simultaneous input and output) then new drivers will not help, because i am thinking that the chipsets with the crystal chip were never capable of it.

You should be able to find drivers for that onboard sound card from the motherboard manufacturers website.

sandmands ,

I have a soundblaster live and I was told that Dragon is just very power hungry and it trys to take control of your input you might want to find out all about having multiple inputs and then check all of your settings.

Thanks for all the input...  I was able to make it work by disabling all memory resident programs... It seems one of them was using the sound and preventing me from allowing microphone input. (just the standard Control-Alt-Delete was not enough in this case)(Had to to System Information to do it correctly)
