    I purchased An Eagle audio card (ISA) in 1998 to go with my P-II, 350 PC. The audio driver that I was provided with the card was ES1868. At that time I had Win 98 as my OS and the card worked fine with a satisfactory audio output.
    Recently, I upgraded my OS to Win 2000 (professional). During the process of upgrading, the OS was able to detect the card correctly and loaded the ES1868 driver from its database. Strangely however, the sound output now is extremely poor to say the least.
    The audio is a jumble of hisses and cracked up unintelligible sound bits. Moreover, now I cannot hear an audio CD at all (not even hisses!).
    I have tried reloading the driver from the Win 2000 database but to no vail.
    Please suggest a solution!

    System Configuration:
    Motherboard.........Intel SE440BX
    Processor..............P-II, 350 MHz
    RAM.......................250 MB
    Audio card (ISA)....Eagle ES1868 (chip:ES1868f)
    OS.........................Windows 2000, Professional

    Sincerely,
    Anindo.

    I'm wondering if the 98 driver would work better?

    Have you reinstalled a version of DirectX since doing the upgrade to W2K? That might help if the card is DirectX compatible.
