  1. Thanks for the ideas, if I get courageous I'll keep messing with it a bit. But, Audigy 2 ZS doesn't have proper WDM drivers for 98SE it looks like so that may only work for higher Windows versions though.
  2. Honestly, if you need to stick with Windows, you might just want to consider Windows Server.
  3. Wow, I'm so happy right now. Who knew such a simple tweak fixed all these errors. Looking back it makes sense, although from a programming background (out of memory) typically means there isn't enough. Not the other way around. Everything is working now. Thank you all so much
  4. Ok, the scanreg restore somehow got me back to my original state. Windows Startup sound works fine but game audio, does not play. DXDIAG sound test reports Failure at step 10 (Secondary buffer): HRESULT = 0x8007000e (Out of Memory). Also, I have tried all available other slots and the result is the same.
  5. Hi I have not tried the other slots (I can do this tomorrow), CPU: Intel Pentium 5 3.00 GHz GPU: ATI Radeon 9800XT RAM: 1024MB I'm also having a lot of difficulty testing this further. Even though I've uninstalled all Creative software and I have removed the devices from Device Manager, every reboot they automatically install. Therefore, I'm unable to install the VxD drivers I have. What's even more interesting, I can't find the driver files it constantly is installing, they simply don't exist.
  6. I don't see why you wouldn't be able to expose a Samba share from your NAS that your Windows 98 computer could see.
  7. Hello, So I finally got my Audigy 2 ZS installed under Windows 98 SE by installing VxD drivers manually. I'm using a Asus p5pe-vm motherboard. All of the system sounds come through just fine, CD Audio works fine as well. However, when trying to launch most games I do not get any audio. Most games don't produce an error just silence. However, any of the Humongous Entertainment games do produce this interesting error that prevents the game from running: "during the dma buffer size search the sound card wouldn't prepare our sound headers" I honestly have no idea what to do with that and Google hasn't turned up much. I tried disabling hardware acceleration on my sound card and I've also tried enabling DMA on my CD-Drive. Everything is set to use the Emu10Kx Mixer [E400] which I'm assuming is the Audigy card. Running DXDIAG sound test I get the following report: DirectSound [Emu10Kx Wave Out [E400]] Device ID: PCI\VEN_1102DEV_0004SUBSYS_20021102RE\ Manufacturer ID: 2 Product ID: 104 Type: VXD Default Device: Yes CTAUD9X.VXD 4.12.0001.0381 9/23/03 ctaud9x.vxd Creative Technology, Ltd. DirectX is set to full acceleration DirectSound test failed at Step 10 (Secondary buffer): HRESULT = 0x8007000e (Out of memory) I tried uninstalling the hardware and software for my Audigy 2 ZS and reinstall using the CD available on vogonsdrivers. BIG MISTAKE. Nothing at all worked anymore. So I removed the hardware and software and tried installing the drivers for my motherboard built-in sound. Similar to the other result I can hear the Windows startup chime (although it sounds terrible) and I can hear some sounds from some games (although terrible). Ironically Humongous Entertainment games still throw the same error. I ran DXDIAG sound test again and noticed it failed at Step 17 (out of memory). I'm running out of ideas unfortunately, maybe someone has come across something similar and may have some suggestions. Thank you for any help. Regards
  8. Hello, I am new and can tell I'm going to like this place . I am trying to install windows 98 SE on an older computer. I went through the installation process and when it rebooted it gave me an error that I had insufficient memory. I did some research and found out that even on SE if you have 1 GB or more of RAM it will throw this error. The microsoft article prompted me to modify a system.ini file, but I don't have one in my Windows 98 Installation directory. I tried creating the file using command line according to microsofts articles and it kept giving errors. I finally gave up and typed one in and I still get there. What's going on here?
