I have an ess tech 1688 "Power Sound" card. It works fine under dos, but there is no sound in windows (95). I get the message:This device is not present, does not work properly, or does not have all the drivers installed. "Something about looking in my manual".(Code 10)

It worked fine before I Formated the Hardisk and re-installed a new version of win 95... OSR 4 I think...

I have looked in system.ini win.ini and the registers but could not find out what was wrong

Also I can't get my Midi playing, but that isn't important...

I hope I have given you a fair impression of the situation.

What kind of system do you have?
If your system have a PnP bios, look up the screen when it frist boot see if they detect the sound card.  In the win95 control panel try to add new hardware and let the device manager find the sound card.
Try to remove all the sound card setting under the system, and manuel add it by using add new hardware don't let it detect you chose the diver form the disk or the win95 CD it is remember to use the disk which come with the sound card.
If it still don't work.  Check the device manager see if there is a (?) on it, if so open it see what kind of device is list there.
If you see your sound card there, double click it then click on diver on the top tab manuel then select the right driver.

I use over 1000s of that sound card in last two years.  They are easy to setup and very reliable.  I only see two cards fail.
If that still don't work you should consider send the sound card back to the your vendor.

Get the new drivers. I'm sorry I don't know the URL. I have one those cards in a machine at home and had to get new drivers for it. I found them on Acer's WEB site, they have a sound card with that chip on it. The drivers that came with WIN95 OSR4 don't work.
