Asus A7V133 mobo installation probs.
Posted on 2001-08-01
Hi I have installed an Asus A7V133 with a 700Mhz Thunderbird. I have 128 sdram and a Fugitsu 20 Gig HD. I installed the mobo and loaded the drivers for it. I removed the old mobo settings from the device manager and let Windows detect everything. I have a Geforce with 32meg ddr and it installed fine.I also have a winmodem that is working fine. I can get online without any probs. I am also using a Creative labs soundblaster live! value card. I am getting several illegal operation message popping up and have tried installing uninstalling and moving the soundcard around in different PCI slots. I get Emu101k (or close to that) messges stating Vxd caused page fault etc. Everytime I put it in a PCI and try to load it I get error messages. I put it in the last slot which is a shared slot b/t 4 and 5 and got the card to work briefly. After rebooting it gave me the same error messages. I have uninstalled all the software related to the soundcard and tried reinstalling it but to no avail.I dont think that the sound card is bad because I got it to work. I am thoroughly stumped at this point. I checked the Asus website for the latest updates and checked latest bios updates.I also checked Creative Labs and coudnt find anything either. I have the latest bios updates and there are no drivers that I am aware of that I need. Should I completely reinstall Windows 98 which by the way is the operating system.Please help . thanks Ken
