what prolly is happening is that you have the old drivers still enabled, if you find out either which one is which then you can right click on the driver in the device manager and remove it... then it will work

Did you try uninstalling the builit-in device in device manager and rebooting. This would force xp to plug and play the device and hopefully find and reinstall the correct drivers. It might not also hurt to unistall the software driver package that came with your defunct pci card first.  Just in case it was software supressing the onboard audio device.

You might need to boot into Safe Mode to find them in Device Manager.

steps to take / check :
-in the bios, enabble the sound card
-install the drivers for it (check on emachine site)
-check device management for proper install (no errors)
-start>control panel>sound and audio>audio check if it is selected
-in  start>control panel>sound and audio>sounds check if windows scheme is selected

so far ive uninstalled the old software the came with the old sound card.  That did not help the sound card on the mobo.  under system, device management, audio,  all i can find i the legecy audio driver but i cannot remove it.  I will try to find them when booting into safe mode.  as far as bios i could not find any setting for audio at all.

JohnHawaiinGoodheartAuthor Commented:
Sorry, I thought I typed the answer out.  On the emachine website, I installed the driver for the audio.  I had to unzip the file to c:/cab and install it from there.  I thought i tried that earlier but I must have made a mistake because this time it worked.  

Thank you everyone
