Does Device Manager report any conflicts?

"Doesn't work" means no sound of any kind? How about audio CDs?

Are you sure your speakers are OK? Try them on some other device,like a Walkman or portable radio,or plug them into the cdrom drive's front panel (if you have a jack there) and play an audio CD.
Were you trying to run the setup program downloaded from Compaq for that card?
Removed the all mutilmedia devices, then reinstall the devices.
