Hi everyone, been a while huh?
Guilhermino, here's the funny thing... I downloaded NF2 a loooong time ago and couldn't get it to work... so, after much searching, as you know, I posted here. About a month later or so, I got it again and tried to get it to work. Success!!!
And I've been using it for several months now. Before you even posted! That's funny isn't it?
Anyway, so that's working now, but just recently, (past month- two months) I realized that... it's really slow. :laughing: Plus, I can't share files, printers, nothing. Just my internet connection. It's been messing up lately too. So within the last few weeks, I got an Ethernet card for DIRT-cheap off eBay. (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...EBWN%3AIT&rd=1
) (Though, it didn't come with drivers a manual, or even a box!)
I came here again to post about a problem I'm having with it. And it's funny, because the original point of this thread, has so much to do with the problem I'm having now, that I figured I could just post here again. :laughing:
I already have an Ethernet card in the internet having computer, but not in the other one. (Really old, 1997 I think.)
Now, about the problem. I downloaded the drivers, installed the card, installed the drivers, and even though I don't have the network cable I need for it yet, everything seems to be perfect as far as that card goes. Lights come on, shows up in the device manager just fine, everything's fine. But, my sound didn't work then. I messed around with it for a few days, and even did a non-destructive hard drive rebuild. (Huge hassle, long time, gave me less space on my computer, uninstalled many many programs, made me have to customize all of my settings again... What it did was basically wiped out my HD, except for all of my personal files, and put it back to the way it was when I first got it.) I did it thinking that maybe my sound drivers were overwritten by the drivers for the card. That was the case I do believe.
This is how it all works. When the sound works fine, I can install the card and it works fine. But then, the sound messes up. It plays the first tiny tiny bit of the latest sound that was played over and over and over again. The only thing that lets the sound work okay, is if I take out the card. Nothing else seems to work. My sound card hates my Ethernet card.
Though, it's not actually a sound CARD, my sound is integrated to my motherboard. My old, four ISA slot, three PCI slot, no AGP having, motherboard that is equipped with a nice AMD-K6 3d processor, 64MB of RAM, and 2MB of integrated video. So yeah, it's old. :laughing: But at least I have windows 98. :laughing:
So what I have now, is a knocked out expansion slot in the back of my PC right above, the burnt modem that looks
just fine, a computer that I still have to restore many settings and programs on, but has sound, and an Ethernet card safely pack in the package it came in.
Anyway, I'm sorry if I kind of went on and on there... I commend you if you made it to this point... please help me figure out why my sound won't work with this card... Thank you so much,
P.S. A couple extra details, the card is PCI, not ISA, and when it's in, neither the card nor my sound have any hardware conflicts in the device manager.
