    Hi all,
    I just got a SoundBlaster Live 5.1 sound card for Christmas. I also bought some surround sound speakers which sound great.I used to have the SB PCI 128 sound card.

    Heres the problem I ran into:

    When I restart the computer, before the windows splash screen, I see this writen:

    SB IRQ conflict with PCI IRQ
    Creative SB16 emulsion driver not loading.
    :eek:

    Anyone now how I'd go about fixing this :confused:

    That's the driver for dos, if you don't play dos games don't worry about it.

    If your running win98 you should be able to go to start/run/type msconfig and press enter, go to the startup tab and find it and uncheck it.

    It causes Windows to load slower, which is very annoying.

    I don't play DOS games but thats not the point. I want to fix the
    problem.

    Can anyone else help?
