PC Speaker instead of Sound Card

Hello everyone,

My configuration is as follows:
Win2k Server
2 sound cards
    1. Altec Sound Card
    2. On Board Dell Sound card (optiplex 300)
  (WHEN BOTH SOUND CARDS INSTALLED SOUND WORKS FINE)

Just installed BVRP Classic Phone Tools with my 56K Soft Touch modem

Now my sound goes through my pc speaker and neither sound card works when I plug in the speaker wire.

Anybody have any suggestions where to start looking to fix this problem?

I think that the problem is that the modem stole the IRQ of the active sound card.  What might work is to remove/disable the sound cards, then install/enable on of them to let Windows offer it a different IRQ.  Should be fine.

For limited IRQs, you may want to disable onboard sound card in BIOS and then do what nihlcat suggested.
