follow the appropriate uninstall procedure to prepare your system for the

located in the TBS Pro Audio program group for additional information on 
the Pro Series cards.

If any problems were encountered during or after installing the drivers, 
refer to the Testing and Troubleshooting document also located in the TBS 
Pro Audio program group. 

1.1. Windows 3.1 users
If you have an old installation of Windows 3.1 drivers for the Pro Series 
cards use the following procedure to cleanup your system.

To uninstall old drivers in Windows 3.x:
1. Determine the current resource settings of the card, especially the 
   upper memory block it uses.
2. Open the Control Panel, double-click Drivers, highlight Turtle Beach 
   MIDI, WAV, AUX and press the Remove button.

   a) In the AUTOEXEC.BAT file, delete the line containing PINCFG.EXE. 
   b) In the CONFIG.SYS file, if an upper memory manager such as 
      EMM386.EXE was loaded, there will be an exclude switch that 
      pertains to the upper memory block used by the card, such as 
      NOEMS X=D000-D7FF.  Remove this exclude switch (NOEMS X=D000-D7FF),
      NOT the memory manager.
   c) In the SYSTEM.INI file, under the [386Enh] section will be an 
      EMMExclude statement that refers to the upper memory block used by 
      the card.  Delete this line.
6. Exit Windows and remove the TBS Pro Audio directory with all its 
   subdirectories. An easy way to do this is to enter the following 
   commands at the DOS prompt:
