I have a really annoying issue with my Sound Blaster 64AWE ISA (CT4390). It randomly freezes up my machine while running Creative Plug and Play Configuration Manager at startup.
It is so bad that all I can do is hard reset. The odd thing is that it seems to be completely random whether it will start up or not.
I've tried few different ISA and PCI sound cards and they work fine which makes me think that maybe my AWE64 is a bit sick. However when the drivers decide to load everything works just fine. I've run DIAGNOSE.EXE multiple times without any issues. No conflicts, etc.
My autoexec.bat and config.sys setting are as follows:
SET BLASTER=A220 I5 D1 H5 P330 E620 T6
C:\DRIVERS\AWE64\SB16\MIXERSET.EXE /P /Q
My hardware config is as follows:
S3 Savage4 32MB PCI
Sound Blaster AWE64 Gold (CT4390)
I am really running out of ideas.
