Sound Card Freezes Computer.

Thank you for helping us maintain CNET's great community. Maybe even try to install the device on a different machine to see if you get the same results. I hope this helps. If so, what motherboard do you have installed? http://recupsoft.com/sound-card/sound-card-freezes.html

The only way to get the thing running out ofsafe mode was to disable the sound card under device manager. I have changed boot settings to only look for a boot record on the C drive but it still won't go on. Do you think you could help me out? The PC froze and was un-usable, mouse didn't move, no keys responded (ctrl+alt+del etc) waited a few mins until I was forced to press the reset button.

Pull the card out and install in a different slot.

Could be a fault/conflict/driver problem there.....If so spend a couple of bucks on an XP compatible cheapo soundcard install it and disable on board sound in the BIOS...never trusted o/b sound Youtube. crjdriver said: ↑ You did not post your pw supply.
