HP Pavillion 750n
1200 MB SDRAM
XP Home SP2 (all updates for all things)
(system is 4 years old)
tried to install Sound Blaster Live! 24-bit sound card. It went in ok (I only have one available slot). Computer booted up. Looked for the driver. I installed from cd. It rebooted..... then got halfway through loading everything and ... rebooted again..... same pattern over and over!! (at least 6 times)
So, I took out the card, rebooted. Boots fine. Have no way of removing drivers without card in, but can't get to anything with the card in either! It did give me an error report... something to do with drivers before it disappeared! Couldn't read it fast enough.
Right now I am running a scandisk.
My onboard sound seems to be "SoundMAX" and/or Legacy. It ... isnt very good anymore.
I need this computer and I need this sound card to work. I work from home on this machine and cannot afford a new one at this time.
Please help!!! I am a novice/intermediate when it comes to computer technology, so walk me through any help.
Thanks for any help anyone can give me.
