Windows XP doesn't recognise my sound card. I am not sure if it is physically properly connected or not, and I'm not sure how to diagnose whether it is or not.
In device manager, neither the on-board sound nor my audiophile 2496 sound card appear. I have a yellow question mark with "other devices", and there are three devices listed there. One is the ethernet controller (I can't connect to the internet with a cable, I'm using a USB wireless adaptor, but that's another problem for another question). Another says "multimedia audio controller" and the third says just "unknown device".
Presumably one of these is my audiophile 2496? I have installed the drivers from the M-Audio website but that hasn't fixed anything.
Thanks in advance!
