The Sound Blaster card cannot share IRQ settings with any other card installed in your system. The most common conflicts occur with the LPT1 parallel port or a network card.
If your device is not a Plug and Play device and a hardware-jumpered IRQ setting conflicts with another device, change the IRQ jumper setting on the Sound Blaster card to one listed under "Supported Settings."
Non-Plug and Play Sound Blaster 16, Sound Blaster Vibra 16, and Sound Blaster AWE32 cards are all recognized as Sound Blaster 16 cards.
The ISA version IBM Token Ring and compatible adapters will not work in a system that contains a Sound Blaster card that is configured at the default I/O port address (0x220). If possible, move the Sound Blaster card to port address 0x240; otherwise, remove the Sound Blaster device from the system.
