I tried both of them. I downloaded a bunch of other drivers, some didn’t say WDM.

When your system restarts it should detect new hardware and install the correct driver. Select all echo off C: This should work for any system board with intel chipsets if you have a board with VIA, SIS, or other types you may have other issues besides windows. To see if my card is soundblaster compatible?


Then I installed soundcard drivers in windows ones that didn’t say WDM and restarted. Don’t wanna install it again if it doesn’t. This fix works for all flavors of the chip.

Rereading my post it isn’t indeed obvious that I was trying to run them from within windows 98se Yeah, I’ve got to replace a very expensive HP scanner because it won’t run under Vista.

Whether it be sound, video, cpu or what not. Or change D1 to D0.

Tried changing it to no already, didn’t make a difference but I didn’t reset the configuration data. So really hope for some replies. Let us know if it worked. If you don’t know,you can use Everest to find out,then let us know I’ve tried various different drivers for the soundcard but so far haven’t found any that makes a difference. No, I’m trying to get them working from within the win98 environment.
