Is it a new PC? Is the sound card integraded to the mother board?
Did you install the card?
If its not a new pc you should try to check if the sound card is properly installed (remove it and place it back in) making sure that the sound cable is properly connected. Then when you reboot the pc you should get a new harware found message and then youcan re- install the drivers.
If you keep having problems post them here and tell me the model name of the sound card.

Please check to see if the card has been initialised in DOS first. Some cards need to be installed and initialised in DOS before windows can use it. you should see some lines added to your AUTOEXEC.BAT file. if not try installing your sound card from DOS to insert the lines for you. Also check that you do not have any other device using IRQ 5 for example, a MODEM.
