I am installing a sound card.  i have it installed in the slot/bank.  Now when I boot the computer up it recognizes the new hardware and asks for a driver so I proceed by inserting the cd in the cd rom.  I use the path that is given in the instructions and it says that they can not find the file for the drivers.  Is there any other way manually maybe to install this?

Two things;

Firstly, are you sure you specifying the correct directoty / drive for the files on the CD rom. If you are not sure select "browse" and have a look. It could also be looking on the wrong drive. Are you sure the drive letter displayed is your CD rom drive? Windows often gets this wrong when looking for installation files.

Secondly, are you sure these are the correct drivers of the sound card?

What is the name of the file it wants/can't find?
