First place to look is
Control Panel->System->Device Manager->Sound ...
See if there are any conflicts.

In Device Manager select your sound card then press the Properties Button.

Device Status should say "This device is working properly."

The Resources tab should tell you that there are "No Conflicts."

Hardly the place for this question, but here goes: Assuming that you are working in Windows 9x, go to control panel and select Add New Hardware. You'll be prompted to alow Windows to seek out any plug and play devices on your system. Click okay and let it run through.Assuming your soundcard is functional, it should be found and Windows will look to install the drivers for it. If that fails, then right click on My computer on the desktop and select properties. Open Hardware configuration and look for sound devices. Delete any that appear there and try the autosearch again. This should find the sound card for you. Then it is a simple matter of installing the drivers (windows will prompt you for a location, usually the setup disk).


Good luck!!

Ok, I will run you through a little hardware check.

1>.. Get Sound Card Manual out!
2>.. Remove card & make sure it is using plug & play settings, your manual will explain how it is setup.
3>.. goto your BIOS and make sure its Configuration is Auot-Configuration.
4>.. Goto the Add new Hardware Wizard in the windows Control Panel and run it.

If this doesnt find any new hardware.

5>.. Remove Sound Card again, and give Aos Test I will explain, Open Window and chuck out saying 'Adios', and buy yourself a new one, Cheaper Sound cards, & older ones sometimes cook there chips over time.

Hope that helps
