Win95 Device Manager does not show Soundcard

My sister asked me this question, and I could not figure out why when we looked in My Computer, then System, then Device Manager the SoundCard doesn't showup.  She gets sound through the speakers, we even reseated the soundcard.  We've tried to have Windows95 detect it, but it never does.  It is a SoundBlaster Pro MMP16P (she says).  She tried to install the 7th Guest, but the program told her that it could not find a soundcard, therefore it would not install 7th Guest.  7th Guest had been run on this system when it was WFWG 3.11 and MS DOS6.22.  Windows 95 Upgrade version was installed over the previous operating system.

Does someone have any answers, or do you need more information from me.

leew's comment was an added help.  Had my sister Email me copies of her system files for review.  Set Blaster=... etc are in there.  I got to thinking, since Win95 was installed over WFWG3.11, the Soundcard drivers may still be running off the old DOS drivers.  I Emailed her a Windows 95 driver update for her soundcard, and she is supposed to get back with me as to whether or not this update lets her soundcard show up in device manager.

I would be interested in leew's Email address -- sounds like a knowledgable person to keep in touch with.  Didn't see this name on the Top10 List on Exchange's page.

A thank you to Jenna also, we for some reason just didn't think of what occurred during the upgrade to Windows 95.  There could still be other problems out there we need to look into.
