I am having problems with my sound & video. i'm running Win98, with a SoundBlaster pro. i just installed a Riva TNT 16 MB AGP video card. In SOME (not all) games and playing mp3s, my sound is very "fuzzy" with a good amount of distortion. There does not appear to be an IRQ conflict. I've tried to get updated drivers from Creative but it says there are non available.
Also, I don't think my video card is being fully recognized as being on an AGP slot. When running some applications (esp. Quake II) I notice that it says Riva TNT detected on PCI port. And, when I originally installed it PnP said ti found the new deivce on a PCI port. (It IS in the AGP slot!)
Any suggestions for resolving either of these problems?
Many thanks,
Abcowan

Thanks for the reply. The video driversd are as new as they come (NVidia's Detonator) and as for the soundcard, creative's site maintains there are NO drivers for SB Pro in Win 98! Thanks anyway...more ideas?

I couldn't find any drivers either, you may have to bite the bullet and buy a newer card.

As far as the pci/agp message that's normal. Windows always says found new pci device rather than agp

would the installation of the video card cause my sound to screw up? i never really had problems before. It IS a rather old card, on an ISA slot. Thanks so much.

Never heard of that type of card causing audio distortiion.
Unless they where to be sharing an irq but I doubt the system would run if that where the case.

What are you system specs, it could be your pushing the system and it's dropping sound in order to keep up. Sound generally gets dropped first.

go to start/settings/control panel/multimedia. Make sure your sound settings look correct and the correct speaker setup is selected.
