I hava a pentium 200MMX and I have installed Soundblaster AWE32 on it. I have picked up the latest drivers from Creative´s homepage and installed them.
The problem is that when there is a sound in Windows it sounds weird. Sometimes it crashes a program when a website contains sound. It sounds good in DOS. I´m running under Windows 98 and I have just upgraded from 95. The problem also occured on Windows 95. It seems to be a conflict or something. If you know the solution please help me.

Thanks

Ensure that the default settings are on your Sndcrd. IRQ5, I/O Ports 220-22F & 330-331 & 338-33B, DMA1 and 5. If these are not the wrint settings then make them so.
Anything that shares the same areas should be changed.

It still does not work. I have looked at the I/O port settings and the DMA,IRQ settings. They are the same as you described. The sound has a lot of rustle in it if you know what I mean. No units are in conflict according to Windows. There are no yellow exclamination marks in the device manager. Is it possible that there may be some old driver or something like that lying in the background? What´s wrong?

Please reject my answer so someone else can place an alternative.
I would suggest removing the sound drivers completely and reinstalling them again.
