hi fellow Experts. Here is my problem.
Running Xp home and have sucsessfuly been using dman midiman pci audio card. Originally I had it in an IMB Aptiva with onboard sound (crystal) but had to dissable onboard to load midiman card drivers etc...
Then had it working in a new pc without onboard sound and no problems.
Yesterday I upgraded the following,
Motherboard A8vmx ASUS
CPU AMD athlon 1800mhz (formaly pentium 111 250 mhz)
Ram 1 gig ( 2 chips)
I had to reinstall and reactivate xp to even get the thing booted up but before it would boot I had to remove the only pci card on the board (dman). once booted and all is fine i dissable onboard sound card, told bios to use plug n play os and even dissabled a com port to make sure there was a spare irq for the card to use.
Plugged in the card and poof ! It hangs once I click on my user account (loading preferences) is displayed then a black screen and hangs.
I've tried other cards (lan cards etc..) in the pci slots and they work. I know the cxard works cuz I try it on another pc and it finds it.
The strange thing is, even when I try to run the software driver program in hangs as well (just the hourglass showing)
I have the latest driver software. in the manual it says drivers MUST be installed before card. Also must have directx 5 or above. I have latest directx.
Possible causes is irq conflict however I can't seem to get it resolved.
Any ideas ?
p.s. I know the motherboard can run the card as I've seen other setups similar to mine on the net.
