I am getting the error Error ID = 0xC00D11BA, Condition ID = 0x00000000 and do not know what sound device to downloadd
Pop out the card and look for a tag with a name on it. If no tag with identifier, look at the plastic header to see if there is a name. If nothing there, look at the large chips on the board and look for the name. Then go to their website and see if they have other identifiers to look for. and download the drivers. If you are running Windows 7, and they only have drivers through XP or Vista- determine if you are running 32 bit or 64 bit. and download that driver.
If it is onboard the motherboard, look for a name and a model of the motherboard. It would be normally available through the support downloads of the motherboard manufacturer. If it was a custom build for another manufacturer such as Dell, go to www.dell.com and enter your model number or service tag to get to the page for downloading the drivers correct for that system. download and archive the driver executable after you have tun it, so saving to the desktop is a good idea.
If the sound card has only a Compac part number for example, you need to go to the Compaq website and enter the part number in the seatch criteria, you may have to wade through a few screens if you have to wade through vintage legacy drivers, but you simply downloard the executable (to archive if it occurs again) and install.
If nothing is found there, try http://www.driverguide.com you do need to know what the past number or model number are. In some cases with Soundblaster, 2 drivers cover most of their vintage sound cards at 16 bit and 32 bit.
