ok, well ive never had luck getting these sound cards to work under windows 98se. i have one compaq that has the ensoniq chip onboard and anouther pc with a ensoniq pci audio card installed. i cant seem to find drivers anywhere for these things or even any origional install cd's on ebay so maybe i'm missing something. ive tried downloading the drivers from creatives website because i've been told they should be compatible. i enstalled the .exe's but it still comes up as a unknown pci audio device conflict under device manager. when i try to update the drivers through device manager manually i see the option for "ensoniq pci audio" under the sound/midi/gameport device section but when i select it it just says the files not found and asks for a install cd. when i try to manually put the drivers on the hdd and then manually select them is says drivers not found.
ive tried multiple sites for the drivers and as i stated creatives site because i was told thier drivers for the ensoniq should be compatible, i ever tried the sound blaster pci 128 drivers with the same result and no luck. am i missing something here? i have no ISA slots so my only other option is to track down a SBlive! card since i have an install cd for that. i know thier cheap cards but id like to not spend any money here.
