sound card trivia

I have an OPTi931 sound card and a AZT 3000 PNP sound card/modem when ever these are set up, windows95 freezes. Programs won't access e.g. my computer, control panel. My internet programs stop responding (actually everything stops  responding) why is that and how can I stop it? Also when my computer starts up an awful sound comes out of my speakers like my drivers aren't installed properly and the sound is distorted (kind of like different pitches of static) WHAT'S GOING ON???????

Sounds like you may have some INF or driver files that may be corrupt, or pointed to incorrectly in the registry.  Go into safe mode, and delete all sound card, modem card, and related entries in the system part of your control panel.  Reboot the machine and reinstall the device when Win95 asks.  If problem still persists, you could try to remove each and every file on your computer that the card refers to in the INF installation file found on the installation disks.

I've already gone into safe mode and deleted the icons in the system icon. Also I even went as far as reinstalling windows 95 and and the drivers still no success. It happens every time I install the drivers. I have the drivers for the OPTi931 card on cd, I had to download the drivers for the AZT 3000 PNP from the web is it possible that just those files are corrupt? If so, how do I make window95 not install them or the sound card portion of the device.

Sign your company up to try the MB 660 headset now

Take control and stay focused in noisy open office environments with the MB 660. By reducing background noise, you can revitalize your office and improve concentration.

arcarson,
Please reopen the question if the current proposed answer hasn't solved your problem.
The two cards are probably competing for the same resources, causing the conflict.
Why do you want two soundcards installed in your computer?
If you must use them both, try disabling the drivers for the unwanted card in the current configuration under Device Manager.
Regards,
Ralph
