I've recently had to reinstall my whole computer, so I had to install Windows and all the drivers for the hardware again.
Unfortunately, I've lost the disk woth my sound card drivers. All sounds I can get now are beeps.
I've tried some sites and DXDIAG, but they all said I didn't even have
a sounds card, which I definatlely have, because before i reinstalled I
could get sound in programs. I need some way to find out what sound
card I have,(maybe there's a sticker on the hardware or something) and
then I need to get the drivers.

Re: Sound Card drivers
It sounds like you just need to identify your specific sound card, and then get the drivers for it. To do this, it's easiest to find the device and vendor id's for your card. Luckily, windows can easily tell you them even if you don't have the drivers yet. To do it, follow these instructions:
Right click on My Computer, and choose Manage.
Now in the box on the right, find your sound card. It will have an icon with a small yellow exclamation mark next to it. Right click on it, and choose properties. You should see a windows similar to this one:
That is the text that will identify your sound card. From here, you'll need to pull out the VEN_#### and DEV_#### numbers.
Once you have those numbers, head to http://www.pcidatabase.com. Do a device search by entering only the 4 letters and numbers found in the DEV_#### part. It will pull up a list of devices, and from there you can identify your sound card.
If you are not able to uniquely identify your sound card, then comment back with the DEV_#### and VEN_#### numbers, and i'll help you find it. Steven

After reinstalling/installing an Operating System you can lose the Audio Drivers or sometimes they just corrupt.. Try reinstalling the Audio Drivers from the disk provide with your P.C./Laptop. If you no longer have the disk just visit the website of the makers of your P.C./Laptop or Motherboard and download the Audio Drivers from there, after that install them.
Thumbs up please if this works for you, thanks..
First, download the latest driver for your card. Turn off PC and remove the sound card, then turn on PC and carry out the following; 1. Deinstall the driver and reboot the system.
2. Execute the Windows program regedit and search all items for "Delta".
3. Delete all items and groups of items which point to "M Audio Delta".
4.Turn off PC, re-install card and reboot the system.
5. Install the latest M Audio driver.
Take the card out of the computer and reinstall it, perhaps to another pci slot. Reboot the computer and when it finds the hardware let windows load the drivers for it. If you are connected to the internet during this time, windows will ask to search the web for the best driver...let it.
Hey, try connecting a headphone to your computer and check if you get sound through it.If yes then there is some problem with the speakers. If not then either the sound card on the computer is not working or you need to reinstall the driver software for the sound card.
