Re: Weirdness after installing soundcard

I don't reckon it's a power supply. It may be the memory. If you have an opportunity to swap memory modules for different ones, try it. Or if your rig has two pairs of RAM, try it with just one pair and if the problem persists, try the other pair. Memory is being looked at too. Ill give you guys an …

Re: Weirdness after installing soundcard

Maybe weak battery. Might want to try clearing the BIOS settings with the jumper on the motherboard as well. Sometimes that helps with weird issues. Could be the power supply I guess. How old is it?

Weirdness after installing soundcard

Hello, I recently switched from a pnp ISA ct4170 sb vibra card to a aztech galaxy 2 ISA card. Super card ! Install was quick and works with all dos games. No high low dma conflict.

Re: ct4170 pnp vibra card DMA conflict

There's no conflict, it is by design. The Vibra16XV can not use 16-bit DMAs, so low and high DMA channels are the same (or at least either 1 or 3). BUILD engine games like Duke3D and Blood are known to not work with such a configuration and you have to select SB Pro mode in these games. You can …

Re: ct4170 pnp vibra card DMA conflict

Ahh, the joys of using "Plug and Pray" hardware in DOS, I remember those well from back in the day. In the Award BIOS, there's usually a menu called "Integrated Peripherals". From there, you should be able to disable the onboard parallel and serial ports which will free up the relevant IRQ values, …
