Did you reinstall the sound card drivers?

Have you verified that the sound card is installed fully? Seated properly, etc.?

Have you tried to remove the sound card entry from within Windoze via the add/remove hardware, and then reboot and see if windoze sees it and asks that you reinstall it?

What type of sound card? is it integrated on the MB, an ISA card, or PCI card?  What version of windows?

Being a duron the mobo (like most) may have the sound on-board?
the driver should be located with the 4in1 motherboard drivers on the cd (this is providing you have a via chipset)
other chipsets will use other driver sets, but again the sound driver should be in the same place.

Did you do a complete re-install of windows of just a drivecopy???

The two should be unrelated.  Make sure you didn't remove or loosen anything while you were working in there.  If the soundcard isn't on-board I would recommend reseating it.

Yes it is related.  You are probably running on a standard or previously installed driver.  I would recommend removing the previous driver from your system totally and reinstalling the correct driver from scratch.

Good luck.

That ISA card wouldn't happen to be made by Creative would it?

Creative has some installation troubles (even with their really high end stuff).  What I would do is write down the numbers off the card, and then type them one by one into your web browser search bar until you can find out a manufacturer, and model number.  If it is Creative, I have had pretty good luck with emailing their TECH support people and getting them to solve the problem with good instructions (it does take 2 days for a response, but this question has been going on for longer then that anyhow).  Did you have a chance to completely uninstall and reinstall the card?
