My SoundMax sound card was working one day - and then not the next. I have tried re-installing windows (98) and have re-installed the drivers. It is in my Device Manager and says it is working properly. In Multimedia everything in the Audio tab is greyed. Under Devices it is there but says 'Status: Driver is enabled but inactive due to unknown problem.'

AHHH, HELP! MY MUSIC MEANS ALOT TO ME :cry:

Okay... you installed a new card... correct? The trick with installing something new that you want to override ANYTHING that is built onboard, is you need to completely disable the original one first... from the sounds of things the onboard may have crapped out or whatever, but you still need to go to the BIOS (post back if you need help getting in) and go to a section like Onboard Peripherals, or something like that. There you should have the option of disabling onboard sound... once you do that, go to Windows and check to see if you have sound... if not, uninstall and reinstall your Vortex and give that a shot... if that doesn't work post back and someone will get you take care of. Good luck!

I had the same problem, and if you change your sound card, change drivers, wherever, the problem will remain.

I have a solution.

The problem is : the system.ini file on your computer is corrupted or some command lines are missing, this can occurs when you install a program and for a understandable reason the config.sys files is not written correctly.

First I will say what not work

A) If you delete de system.ini and install windows again, you system.ini will appear, but with the old problem, so don’t do that.
B) If you reformat your HD and install windows again, the problem is solved, but I think this is too traumatic.

What can work ?

A) If you have an system.ini old copy, you can copy to C:\WINDOWS directory an replace the actual system.ini , maybe this is not easy to do, because is not normal make an system.ini copy.
B) If you have a friend or if you know someone who have a computer with an configuration like yours you can take a copy of system.ini and copy to C:\WINDOWS directory on your computer.
C) You can copy any system.ini file even if the computer is different from yours. You can try use my system.ini file, but I think this is too different from yours because my configuration is Brazilian, but you can copy and past and after that you can change your configuration change things like keyboard setting.

If you solve your problem please let me know.

Thanks

Please excuse-me I’m Brazilian and my native language is portuguese and my English is not very good, I hope you can understand-me.
