Sound Driver

I am running Windows 3.1 and have been getting the following message

      ES688WIN.386 cannot locate a usable interrupt                channel...
      ...check software and hardware configurations.

I have been told that I need to reinstall the driver for my sound card.

Problem is that I don't know how.  I don't have anything that I recognise as a sound card.
Should I reinstall Windows?  Tabworks?  MediaPilot?

Any advice you can provide will be appreciated.

Do you know where this es688win.386 device drivers is comming from ? The entry for this driver is probably in system.ini under 386Enh section. Try to set a ; in front of the line and see how it goes.
You have mention 3 program, Windows, Tabworks and MediaPilot. If this is the only program you have on your PC, I suppose that MediaPilot is the program to reinstall.

I found the system.ini file, located the 386enh section and
put ; in front of
      
      device=esx88win.386

The effect was to eliminate the error message, but I still
don't have sound. I expect this is due to my computer
ignorance rather than the caliber of the response.
