Further to you last message, I have reinstalled the old sound card I previously used on my last computer. It is an Avance Logics ALS4000 card. I downloaded the drivers and reinstalled it and I have sound. But I still have a conflict under device manager. It has installed a standard game port but it has an exclamation sign.
When I go into it, it says, This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12)
If you want to use this device, you will need to disable one of the other devices on this system.
The problem is there is no other items with exclamation points, so I would conclude that it is an IRQ conflict, but I am unable to determine what IRQ it is using and how to change it. So I don't know how to fix the problem. I don't think it is a problem with the sound card/game port. I think it is a conflict with the motherboard.
Also, when I go into add hardware, I have to choose a generic and try to configure from there, but it has automatically installed the generic game port - which would be sufficient if I could get Windows to think it is working properly.
