SoundBlaster CT4170 (WavEffects) in HP Vectra QS/20 -- possible memory corruption issues
I should be contributing here more often, but I sadly haven't really had the time. But I'm back to solve another issue.
So my awesome Vectra recently got a "new" SoundBlaster card. I had to figure out the software, but I finally got some that works. I used CTCM and CTCU and it plays sound. However, there are two problems:
- Windows crashes when I play MIDI files.
- CTCU crashes when I test the configuration.
I ran MemMaker to try to sort these things out, but I'm under the impression that something is corrupting the memory. It's on DMA 1, which is 8-bit. I'm pretty sure that this is an 16-bit card so I'm thinking that has something to do with it. I also wonder what difference the card slot makes. By the way, here is the configuration:
Driver Unit Number = 0
Base I/O Addx = 220 hex
IRQ = 5
Low DMA Channel = 1
High DMA Channel = 1
BLASTER environment is set at: A220 I5 D1 H1 P330 T6
System is most definitely not PnP. It's a Vectra QS/20 with BIOS date 10/25/90.
I'm certainly pleased with myself for getting this far, but I'm at a loss as to what to do next so that it doesn't crash. Any ideas? If you need any more (like CONFIG.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT), I can provide those details too.
