Can you tell us more about your system and what type of sound card  you have. Intel and creative labs they have plug and play configurator software, but if you have pnp bios then you don't need it

You have a Sound Blater Card. Do you remember you got two disks and a CD with your sound card. One of the disks contain Windows 95 drivers and the other floppy disk contains the DOS drivers. Install them and it will work fine.
