Re: [vox-tech] IBM Esssolo1 Sound

Disable serial and parallel ports (and anything else you see in the BIOS
setup) and see if that helps.  Do it even if you need these hardware, so
at least you can identify the problem.  Also try updating the BIOS with
the latest from IBM, if any.  Let us know what happens!
