Midi player won't work; Wave works

I was recently fooling around with a Dialogic voice board in my computer and after I disabled it, the sound card wouldn't work. Tried to reinstall the sound card and drivers. The wave files play just fine but the midi player won't work.

When you say you disabled it, do you mean that you removed it?
Check Device Manager for conflicts. (! in a yellow circle) If none, try re-installing multimedia from add/remove programs>windows setup in control panel.

Remove all drivers for your sound card then reboot your system then windows95 will ask you  for drivers load them from floppy or cd-rom

Since you've already re-installed sound drivers, here are other things to try:
In control panel, multimedia, click the midi tab and see if your sound card's midi device is selected. Then, double-click speaker icon on taskbar for volume controls.  Click options and make sure your midi device is selected.
Hope it helps,
