THIS IS FOR SB4740 Soundblaster PCI 16 model

The card is not working at all. No sound whatsoeever. I
have yamaha sound chip on the motherboard which has been
disabled. No conflict in IRQ( At least its not shown in
my control setting)Although USB Controller is on IRQ11
alongwith soundcard.As such following is the detail of
IRQ setting
0 Timer, 1 KB , 2 PRgramable interrupt controller, 3
None, 4 Com1, 5 LPT1, 6 Floppy, 7 Modem (I have DSL , so
removed this now),8 clock, 9 Videocard (2 & 9 are both
used but 2 is for interrupt controller so ok i guess),10
Ntwork, 11Audio and USB Controller(Is it a problem??),12
PS2Mouse,13 Suystem, 14 PCI Busmaster IDE and Primary IDE
(Can it be a problem),15 None.

Drivers are from CD that come alongwith the product. So
the latest one, I guess

Error Messages Received:

Most of the times it shows: Your sound card may be in
already use. Eventhough explorer and systray are the only
running applications.

When I run DirectX Diagnostics (Version 8), It shows
Priority level is already used by other caller.

When i tried to change IRQ, System shows IRQ settings can
not be changed.

Troubleshooting Steps Performed Thus Far:

I did diagnosis , reinstalled card and drivers, Disable
soundchip on the mother board with the help of CMOS/BIOS,
Checked speaker connection, Card conntection, Volume
setting, Conflict checking etc..
