I have an old Creative Soundblaster PCI Card Model CT4740 which I believed was faulty from trying to install it on an old machine about 12 months ago and it did not work then. I have 3 questions:-
1. Today I plugged the card into a spare slot on the motherboard and when I switched the machine on, my monitor (vdu) said no signal is being received. Is this because the PCI card is faulty? and if so, why did it temporarily cause this error with no signal being received on my monitor vdu? The monitor vdu worked fine again after I removed the faulty PCI card from the motherboard slot.
2. The Creative Soundblaster Model CT4740 is a "full duplex" card I believe and is 16 bit. Are all Creative Soundblaster Sound Cards (and above models CT4740) "full duplex"?
3. What is the difference between 16 bit and 24 bit or 128 bit higher?
I await your replies.
