    Incorrect INT setting in system.ini file

    I get no sound, and am using windows ME.

    Lots of info Here and Here

    An example below:

    To install the drivers manually

    Add the line:-

    SET BLASTER=A220 I7 D1 H5 P330 T6
    to the start of your AUTOEXEC.BAT file.

    Edit the WINDOWS\SYSTEM.INI file.
    Clicking 'Start' > 'Run' > 'sysedit', then click 'OK'.

    In SYSTEM.INI add the end of the [386Enh] section the line
    device=vsbpd.386 (example only)
    making sure that the line device=vsbd.386 does *not* appear.

    add to the [drivers] section
    wave=sbe16snd.drv (example only)
    midi=sbe16snd.drv (example only)
    aux=sbe16aux.drv (example only)

    and add the lines below which will create a new section. [sndblst.drv]

    Save SYSTEM.INI (By closing SYSEDIT).

    Shutdown & Restart Windows to enable sound

    I have already done all that, most of it was automatic, and i have checked to make sure that it is correct, but i still get the error message. Any other suggestions?

    Normally it's just a matter of loading the correct driver setup program
    You could try Unknown Devices program, to hopefully get the correct Sound Card Model number.
    Even DriverGuide (free membership required) trying a few different alternatives
