I have a C-Media CMI8738 soundcard and a Linksys LNE100TX network card.

The problem is that i recently installed the latest drivers for the former but upon doing so my network card stopped working.

If i disable the soundcard and reboot, ta-daaa! The network card works.

There are no conflicts showing in the Device Manager for either card but they don't seem to be getting along.

i'm now running XP Pro. SP1 but used to run SP2 and the same problem existed there.

Any ideas? :tazz:

Howdy:

Try moving your NIC to a different PCI slot and see what happens!!

Curses! i had this problem before and ended up doing a complete reinstall. It's taken me 'til now to realise it was the soundcard causing the problem. Now i've managed to fix it!

Turns out the soundcard configuration somehow thought there was an extra gameport in one of the PCI slots, rather than just the one attached to it. i've just disabled that, rebooted and the bloody thing's working.

Infernal contraption...mumble...

Cheers, anyhoo!
