    Audigy soundcard conflict! Please help!

    please please help!! im going mad!!
    ok heres the problem.....

    ive just bought an audigy soundcard and im having major headaches!!
    i have a PcChips M848ALU motherboard which has a real dodgy built in soundcard and so i thought wise to upgrade to the Audigy (not sure which one but its got sb0090 & sb1394 written on it)
    I have a connexant pci adsl modem which is where the troubles start!
    When i leave the soundcard installed i get disconnected from the net all the time which is a real bind.
    I stumbled across a solution about disactivating the firewire option in the bios on this forum, but i dont have such an option, so im really stuck here.
    PLEASE HELP!!!! I can provide a aida32 type diagnostic report if that helps anyone!!!
    Ive had ppl telling me to do allsorts but nothing is curing it....and this really is my last shot at this!
    thanks in advance!
    Neil

    track down the manual for the motherboard. with any luck, there should be a table matching up PCI slots to IRQ values (may be referred to as interrupts, or similar).

    ensure that the sound card & adsl modem both are NOT sharing with any other device, especially each other

    creative labs' cards have a defective tendancy to flood the PCI bus with data, this may be the problem here.

    Look in device manager and click on the properties of the devices! Why not make it simple and move the card to a new slot?

    I don't think a bios update would fix it anyway... Also "I" love my ZS and I wouldn't recomend anything other then that creative you have! *Some will respond and recomend M audio! I just know it! You could always format the drive, and let windows sort it out when you reinstal!

    can anyone confirm that this may do the trick?
    I dont really want to reformat if it aint likely to make a difference

    It could be a conflict with the drivers or a program or an update you took... the possibilities are endless! I'd try it but if you have alot of stuff on that drive then you might not want to!

    Have you tried the Sound Blaster Audigy DriverPack sorted all my problems out, all the other drivers caused various problems especially the ones I downloaded from the creative site. All I need to do now is glue the stupid thing in to stop it falling out of the slot.

    Whats so dodgy about the the onboard audio on this motherboard? It is six channel and it has its own (as far as I can tell) APU, so your CPU isn't going to suffer. Dosn't the onboard sound suffice?
    To err is human. To really foul things up ... you need a computer.

    ok....good point!
    The sound card on my motherboard is cool for playing music, but i'm in a band kelly dont drive and use my pc with Cubase to make our demo's. With the onboard soundcard i get loads of hiss when recording the guitars. Someone suggested that this may be because it shares the same power supply or something?? (im not an expert!) As soon as i used my Audigy it sounded fine....but i get this constant internet disconnection.
    Ref the above reply...where do i obtain this Sound Blaster Audigy DriverPack?
