Re: Review: Sound Blaster PCI 128 (CT4810)

2 reviews on the Ensonic PCI range in as many days! https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?f=62&t=98876 For such an unpopular range of cards they are getting some love at the moment. a bit out of scope of this review but I always had problems with Creative's PCI dos driver, network driver and C&C/RA …

Re: Compaq Deskpro New from 1999

Actually, the system routes the sound card output through that speaker unless you plug something into the 3.5mm jack in the back.
