I have not had the chance to mess with it in the past few weeks, but I can give you some information.
The problems occur, consistanty, when the soundcard is inserted and the touchscreen is trying to be used. The problem started after I installed the sb card and reset.
You have to remember, that when the SB is installed, and the touchscreen does not appear to be working, the computer is still reciving data from the controller. I can even get into hyperterminal and lookat the data, even though it is meaningless.
I will check into the hardware possibilities, but i would think that with that kind of conflict, the controller would not communicate AT ALL.
I also have a 4 port serial card, do you think i might have more luck plugging the controller into that?
