    hey everyone,
    I have a problem with my tower. It is making beeping noices when i turn my computer on. It says in the setting menu when i turn on the computer that there is an error #6 sound blaster emulation disabled in Windows. Driver not loaded. I really do not know waht to do, as you can probably tell im not very smart when it comes to using computers. If anyone can lead me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks a lot

    Welcome to TSG!
    You mentioned your understanding of Computers is limited but you can do this if IRQ change is available to your configuration and similiar to this card.
    Follow the instructions carefully and you should be OK.

    "Error #6: Sound Blaster Emulation disabled in Windows, driver not loaded." What is the problem?

    You need to change the IRQ for the SoundBlaster Emulation. To do this:

    1. Go to the "Control Panel" and select "System".

    2. Click on "Device Manager".

    3. Click on the "+" sign next to "Sound, Video and Game Controllers".

    4. Double click on "SoundBlaster Emulation".

    5. Click on the "Resources" tab.

    6. Uncheck "Use Automatic Settings".

    7. Change the "Basic Configuration" to "0004 or higher,".

    8. Under "Resource Type" (at the top) double click on "Interrupt Request" and change it to "IRQ 7." IRQ 7 will conflict with the Printer Port but that is OK. This IRQ can be shared. You can change it to another IRQ if you have any available. 9. Then click "OK" to everything and "Restart" the system.

    Reference article =

    If the above is not availabel to you then we could try disabling the 16 bit Emulation.

    You say its beeping constantly. I know it mentions the sound card, but I wonder if its your RAM.

    Have you upgraded recently? Also, is the beeping happening all the time, say if you're on the Web with it, etc?

    When my RAM went on my old pc, that did the same. Annoying, to say the least.

    If you can check with another stick, that would be a start. :)

    What is the sound card (or at least what does it call itself under Device Manager)?
    What IRQ's is it using?
    Is there any reference to DDMA?
    Is this 98 First Edition (FE) or SE?
    Have you looked at c:\autoexec.bat for entries?

    Does it ever stop beeping? Is the fan on the cpu working?
