Re: Compaq Pentium 166

I saw a video of a guy with a similar PC to mine, and installing the exact same sound card and he had no issues.

Re: Compaq Pentium 166

Doing this stuff brings me back to when I was a teen in the 90's though back then, I was so much better at this because I did it all the time. Right now I'm trying to edit the autoexec.bat and config.sys to load up the CDrom when DOS starts , but I cant figure it out. Does anyone know the commands …

Re: Compaq Pentium 166

Ok, so I finally had some more time to dedicate to this stuff because of being temporarily laid off because of the corona virus. SO anyway I have kind of made some progress on the sound issues.
