Back in the day, the newer PCI sound cards were of course represented as being upgrades over the older ISA ones, but it was a blunder to accept them as such and install them in systems with working ISA slots.

When I change the settings to 2 speaker, game runs fine. Uninstall drivers that reads like creativw SoundBlaster Live!
