Sound is no longer working

My sound card is no longer working. PNP detects it, but W95 reports an error 24 in Settings|Control Panel|System|Device Manager. I have check bootlog.txt and see no errors. I have compared my current system with a backup taken when sound was working and don't see much of note changing in SYSTEM.INI or WIN.INI.

I have deleted the sound card from the above, let windows reinstall it but no luck.

Where can I find the cause of the error? What else should I be looking for?

I should meantion that using Soundblaster Pro DOS utilities I can successfully access the sound card in a DOS box under windows, i.e., there is no hardware problem and the software settings are OK.

The next thing to try would be to remove the sound card from your system and boot it up. Delete the soundcard from the control panel/system settings reboot the computer with the settings gone and make sure it is up and running w/o the card. Then replace the card into the system, and reinstall the drivers. This should solve your problem
