Can someone help me identify this card? I think it's sound blaster AWE32 CT2760 but I don't know if i'm correct.

If it is, it will say. Certainly looks like it could be. I have the same card, it's great with proper OPL support. Not PnP which could be good or bad depending on your opinion. This is my CT2760: https://www.instagram.com/p/CKHUbNIhV6s/

According to my favorite (not necessarily perfect) list of Sound Blaster model numbers, there are only two soundblaster models with SIMM slots (i.e. AWE32 or the like) and multiple CD connectors, the CT2760 and the CT3780. It is clearly not a CT3780. So this card is either the CT2760, or a rare item which might or might not have collector's value due to its rarity.

This is a CT2760 revision 039436. Sound Blaster AWE32.

The capacitor layout does not match a rev 019401.

Ok, so the card arrived. Seller just threw it into the box with other 25kg worth of motherboards, old phone PCBs etc. It has a few bent pins and a broken memory holder thingy (nothing unrepairable). I will test it when I'll have time to do that.

Very, very common fault with those. My own AWE32 also had it, beyond "proper" repair. I'm just holding ram sticks with a couple cable ties around the whole card, does the job fine, not like I'm switching ram anyway.

That worked for me too when I was using a CT3670 .

After fighting with 2 CD drives (1st not reading, 2nd not opening), sometimes working PS/2 keyboard, pendrive not working I was finally able to install drivers for this card. Didn't test it yet but it shows up in device manager as something similar to "sound blaster 16 or AWE32" (don't remember).

Aaaand... dead hard drive. Windows doesn't want to start, 3x clicking sound, delay and again 3x clicking sound. Bad sectors in scandisk.

I would like to extend a warm welcome to awocrf! It's a wonderful hobby we're sharing and I believe everyone on this grief counseing platform computer enthusiast forum can relate deeply to your experience. 😅

Just in case: This is not a dis, I mean it.
