    Millenium.Conflicts in sound.Had it in the shop and was told that it was a resources problem.Would cost too much in his labor for that old of a computer.Said if I had time,I could mess with it.Tried both of my slots on mobo,no help.I updated the drivers for onboard sound,no help.I disabled onboard sound and uninstalled drivers.I put in new sound card(tried 2 different ones) installed drivers,and still no sound.Sound plays for a couple of seconds and then get a buzzing.Reboot and sound again plays for a couple of seconds and then again,noise.And also when noise starts,computer freezes?I tried sound test in dxdiag,media player,wav file from internet with no improvement.In dxdiag I get a failure at step #3-H result=ox8878oooa(request failed because direct sound resources such as priority level were already in use by another caller.That is why I would like to assign it another irq?

    Have you tried this?
    Disable the ON BOARD sound adapter (perhaps in BIOS). Put the PCI SOUND CARD in an empty PCI SLOT. Go to DEVICE MANAGER and REMOVE all under MULTI-FUNCTION ADAPTER and all under SOUND, VIDEO and GAMES CONTROLLER and re-boot the computer.

    Yes I have.I did not have a setting for multi function anything.I disabled onboard sound,removed everything related to onboard sound,installed new sound card-it was recognized,and installed my drivers.I even updated the drivers from web site.No luck.

    How do you know there's a conflict with the sound card or is the sound just not working?

    With my onboard sound,I had yellow exclamation by sound&multimedia.With my new sound card installed,I get a blue screen and freeze on boot up.If I go in safe mode and disable my sound card,everything boots ok.From what I have read on these forums,there is probably a device conflict.So I thought if I played around with the irqs,I could get it to work.

    Someone who knows more about On-Board Sound will have to help you with this one. I'm not sure if you have to disable it in the BIOS or through Multimedia in the Control Panel but it sounds (no pun intended) like theres a conflict between the On-Board and the PCI Card.
