Have you tried reinstalling the sound card drivers?  Has this sound card ever worked before?

you know that pcbugdoctor    thing do you a key for that so i can see if i can fix those errors that it detected because i really don't want to buy one for one time use 40 bucks what a rip off it only lasts 30 days then you pay some more money


i think it is an error in the system that is doing probabaly have to format it and reload the os back on it

don't really like the fact of formating  my dad doesn't really want me to format the drive because all of his things are on it
programs too

OK can you find the FCC ID number on the card and post it here? maybe the drivers are not quite right

OK - Emailing direct is frowned upon, but my fualt really as I should have mentioned it with my e-mail.

Anyhow, looked at your screen dumps, all I can suggest is uninstalling your modem and sound and re-attempting install - don't forget to start up in safe mode and uninstall any modem/soundcards that appear leftover after you have done the uninstall - sometimes windows keeps 'ghost' devices.

Thank You - I have returned (after a series of PC mishaps myself)

Right, where wuz we? So your ESS sound (this is btw a poor sound system - have you thought of installing a cheapo SoundBlaster?) is now being correctly ID'd by your system and Device manager has no probs with it?

Can you explain exactly what you mean by '.....It goes really fast.....' You mean like the return key is jammed down on an error pop-up?

Did you fully uninstall any 'Ghost' drivers found in Safe Mode? If not:

Uninstall your sound in Normal mode
Get rid of Ghosts in Safe Mode
Re-install

i mean like it is just super fast and never stops for any sounds in the sound scheme and yes i uninstalled ghost drivers a well to tell you there was alot of them i didn't even know about all of them     i got a soundblaster card two of them i fryed one prtty sure of because i saw smoke from it and the other due to static the one that smoked doesn't fit well in the computer

i am thinking about redoing it again and see if this helps if so i probabaly will be on there all day playing sound but however i take off the sound scheme NASCAR and played some media player songs they were great     but it is dum

ESS sound cards produce louder sound than sound blasyter on my computer so that is why i use it  BTW the problem  computerr without sound is my dad's old one

WHOA! stop there, you saw smoke? And you put it back in..... are you mad? I thought you where joking.

OK look, when components start to smoke they tend to change their previously precise tolerances and characteristics - ie they are stuffed. Also are you running with more than one sound device at the moment?

i just asked it to be closed



the answer that will fix this or the way i fixed this problem was i just copied the hard drive to cd's and formatted the drive and deleted the partion recreated it then i formatted it again  then reinstalled win98se
so then i reloaded the necessary software and well simple it works great i fixed it a couple a weeks ago but didn't close it due to well i wanted to make sure it is good and not break down on me   i only copied the things onto cd's for informational use also to keep files since some were things to keep
