I got a soundblaster CT4780 for my dos computer as I saw there were dos drivers for it. I got dos drivers that were claimed to have been tested. I got those drivers on my computer and it needs to be initialized every time I boot. So I had it initialized and loaded doom to use it. Doom froze while trying to boot the game. So I restarted my computer and forgot to initialize the sound card before starting doom. Doom played but with no sound. So I ended the game and initialized the sound card and started doom again. Doom again froze and I had to reboot. The first thing that came to mind was that when my sound card initializes it says it using IRQ 9 while doom says it's using IRQ 7 as it's free. is that's what's causing the problem or possibly something else? Thanks for your help, you guys have helped me a lot lately.
