&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; I&nbsp;had an IBM
Aptiva MWave Soundcard.&nbsp; Thanks to the prompting of the Linux discussion
groups I&nbsp;have just tried to install a Creative Labs Sound-Blaster
16 Value PnP soundcard.&nbsp; Both in Windows 95 and in Linux, the sound
is played wonderfully.&nbsp; However...
<BR>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; The IBM CMOS&nbsp;upon
bootup now gives me the following error:&nbsp; 1802 Adapter Card Resource
Error.&nbsp; I have tried changing all the CMOS&nbsp;settings (i.e. making
different interrupt ports availiable/not available) and have had no luck.&nbsp;
I think the problem is a MIDI&nbsp;conflict.&nbsp; This is due to the fact
that when I try to run the DOS based diagnose.exe, it gives me an error
on the MIDI.&nbsp; If I choose 300, 340, or Autoscan, it says it cannot
continue due to a MIDI conflict.&nbsp; It is of note that I have removed
the MWave soundcard and all references to it in the autoexec.bat and config.sys.&nbsp;
I also removed all references in the Windows 95 devices.&nbsp; I boot with
lilo and it's a CMOS&nbsp;error so this shouldn't matter anyway.&nbsp;
Also, I scanned for controller conflicts in Windows 95 and was unable to
find anything.
<BR>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; I received more
than one email from MWave users who have switched soundcards.&nbsp; If
anyone rectified this problem when switching or knows how to fix this it
would be greatly appreciated.&nbsp; Please email me as well as posting.

Thanks,

<P>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;

p.p.s I did read it in case I was able to help (I have a similar card and had
    problems as well) but ... no luck. Sorry
