No sound from Creative Labs 1.0 and Garbled Sound from SB 2.0 and SB16?
Hi folks, working on a very nice retro-fit computer build, using slightly newer retro-fitted parts. It's a VERY EARLY Gateway 2000 computer; a 386DX-20 that had a corroded motherboard. I replaced it with a very nice shape and fully functioning DX4-100 486 motherboard with a AMI BIOS. I installed DOS 6.22 onto the original MASSIVE 1 GB (Massive both in size for its time and in physical size, it is the side of a full height MFM drive) and went to set up a Sound Blaster using the 1.0 drivers on this site. I got the drivers to install; but am getting absolutely NO AUDIO AT ALL with my SB 1.0 card. It's jumpers are currently the following:
I/O Address: 220
Not getting any audio at all. Making me very upset as i would love to have this functioning in my rebuilt computer.
As a result, i started to use my next oldest SB, a Sound Blaster Pro 2.0 16 bit card. I reinstalled DOS cleanly and installed the drivers. I do get weak audio with my tested and working Gateway 2000 speaker system (Boston) but it is garbled and barely distinguishable. The speakers must be up ALL THE WAY MAXED OUT before i hear anything. I tried adjusting the audio knob on the back and no luck.
Finally i tried my earliest Sound Blaster 16 card, a 1993 CT2290 Revision 1. The jumpers are the following:
IDE IRQ: 11
AUDIO_PWB: JUMPERS 3&4 CLOSED
I have the same issue with this card as i do with the SB 2.0 PRO. Garbled audio and weak signal. What is going on? Anything i am missing?
