Appreciate some assistance.

Nephew has a Creative Labs Sound Blaster CT 4810 Sound card installed on a PC running W98SE.

When the PC starts, after the Windows logo, but before the desktop comes up, a message comes up saying:

"Creative SB PCI
The SB PCI interrupt has been routed incorrectly by the system. Audio PCI inactive. Use automatic settings in Device Manager. Press any key..."


When he brings the PC to my house, it runs like a charm. When he takes it home, the message keeps coming up. All else remains the same.

Any ideas of why the interrupt is routed incorrectly by the system?

sounds like a device conflict. When he is at your house something is not connected that is when it's at home.

Try the sound card in a different pci slot, that should force a different irq for the sound card.

brianF,

Thank you for your reply.

Will give your suggestion a whirl and see what happens.

The strange thing is that today, the PC has worked fine. Will probably wait and see if the issue surfaces again before moving the card.
