I accidentally deleted the original sender's message, but I noticed that
he'd said his sound card was using IRQ7, and I'd suggest trying IRQ5, 9,
or 10 first. Most recent mainboards have built-in parallel ports which
default to 0x378 and IRQ7, and it's quite possible that that's causing a
conflict. Even if he has it turned off in the BIOS, some boards actually
don't shut the device off. It's worth a check.
