Did you check that the sound card is installed properly?  In the Control Panel, go to System, open Device Manager and look under Sound.  If there is nothing, or a yellow circle, the sound card is not properly installed.

Go to System properties, in safe Mode, go to Sound Devices and delete them. then, reboot, when Windows is looking for the Sound card. select Other Driver, choose I have a DISC, browse to the WIN95 Folder of your Sound card. then choose the correct model of the sound card. "NOT THE SAME AS THE ONE PRIOR". you should find the correct Model of the Sound card in your Documentation of the Manual of the hardware you bought. and in the documentation of the PC when you bought it it should say what type it is.

you have not installed the right card drivers yet, most of the time it will sound and let you play but not to have the ICOn in the systray. If this Sound card has a Volume control integrated in the CARD in will not install. more with the SOund Blaster Old cards that came with the VOlume in it. so it will not show in the systray. it will have to be through the hardware.
