conflict between NIC and soundcard
Posted on 2000-04-11
How do I resolve a conflict between my NIC 3COM 905B-TX and my Yamaha DS-XG sound card because I get kicked off our 3-computer network daily? I have a Dell Dimension XPS T450, Windows 98 SE. The NIC is on IRQ 10 and the soundcard on IRQ 9. When I got kicked off my System Info-Network-Problem Devices reported "File and Printer sharing for Microsoft Networks--this device has a problem Code 10 (0xA) driver vserver.vxd." One month ago a tech at 3Com had me install the latest drivers. A tech from Dell had me reset the NVRAM in the BIOS. I know the problem is not with the network, the cable or the hub because when I attach my Toshiba laptop to the same cable, it never gets kicked off. A tech from Dell had me disable the soundcard, and I have gone for 60 hours without being kicked off and that is a new record because it was always less than 24 hours. That is why I suspect the soundcard. But now that it is disabled, what do I do to resolve the conflict?
