Thanks for the points MAVERICK,
Look for an FCC number to identify no-name cards.

whoami's right - the es688 is not a card - it's a chip - ess manufactures the chip for card makers - so we would need either the actual maker of the card or possibly what make/model of the computer was

Looks like you're going to have to the play "trial and error" game with the jumpers but you can at least go here to get drivers that will work.

Sounds like it may be better to throw it out and buy a new one.... They only cost about $30 (OEM).....

There was no noticeable brand on the old computer system....

Q what should I do with the points

idiott : The Answer  is effectively not applicable..... the question is not so much about drivers but the jumpers on the card.... After much thinking I'll replace the card and buy a new one....
Goliath: I Realise I can get customer service to delete the question .... But you took the time to answer the question ....

Incidently would the card AutoDetect in Win95 IF it was working properly (not misconfigured!)

Unlikely, I think the 688 predates Win95 and PNP. PNP cards are detected whether IRQ and memory addressing is misconfigured or not, except in the case of a jumper setting to disable/enable PNP. I would play with it a little just to make sure, but like you said, sound cards are cheap.
