AREA: GUS SETUP
DATE: March 8, 1993
KEY WORDS: SETUP ULTRASND ULTRADIR BLASTER
SUBJECT: Manually Editing AUTOEXEC.BAT for UltraSound
If you are expierencing trouble with the UltraSound SETUP you may
manually add the following lines to the beginning of your AUTOEXEC.BAT.
If you are running DOS V5.0 or later you may use the DOS editor called
EDIT. The lines are:
SET BLASTER=A220 I7 D1 T1
This will configure your UltraSound for its new recommended default
configuration. This example assumes that your UltraSound software was
setup on your C drive in a directory called ULTRASND. It is also
assumed that your base port address is set to 220.
After you have made these changes and rebooted your computer try
running some of the demos that came with your UltraSound card
including, FLIDEMO and MIDIDEMO. If these demo's hang your computer
try changing the GF1 IRQ, DMA and base port address of your UltraSound
as you have a conflict with another piece of hardware.
