I tried installing the DB II and it fried 2 soundblaster lives! (4780) This card is the one that came with a brand new dimension 8100 1.5ghz. I pulled the jumpers off the back of the sb, and used a straight ide (40pin) cable to connect to the db ii. I smelled burning plastic, and the sb then proceeded to cause a system lockup when starting the machine (win2kserver). I tried it again with another sblive and the computer wouldnt even power on. I have the red stripe on the ide cable pointing to the triangle on the sb and the db, so that is ok. Does anyone have any advice?
TIA

I'm not even sure what a "Hoontech DB II" is...
