Where can I get the sound driver which don't have to set the I/O, IRQ and DMA and compatible for all driver, because I don't know my soundcard type? And the driver is run under windows 3.11 or Ms Dos 6.22

If your sound card is PNP Try to install
ICU (Intel Configuration Utility) So it can detect your hardware.

There is no VESA driver for Windows 3.11. Have you tried the generic SVGA drivers ?

Does the soundcard have any identifying logos ? Or a large chip with anything on it ?

If sound card is Sound Blaster or compatible you can get driver off of Creative Labs page.

Sometimes Trident drivers work for other type of cards(sometimes) or search for driver online at www.dogpile.com, it searchs Lycos, Altavista, Excite,....ad naseum. I find it the best place to search for wierd or hard to find stuff.
