Try this. Put the PCI32 folder on your C: drive. Now use your mouse and click the start button, then click RUN. type CMD. A DOS window will pop-up.
In the DOS window type 'CD \' without the ' ' hit enter on your keyboard that should bring you to the c:\ . Next type 'cd pci32' enter to enter the pci32 folder Finally type 'pci32.exe' enter to run the program. It shouldn't close now.

    Basically PCI32 scans your PCI bus and detects what chipset a card has on it. If you copy and paste the text from the word file I can help you identify which part is your sound card and perhaps locate drivers for it.

    If XP will not install from the CD or if you have a new drive with no operating system onit yet try these:

    Install Windows XP from the hard drive with Windows 98 already installed:

    Boot Windows 98
    Insert the XP CD into your CD reader
    Explore Windows XP through My Computer
    Copy i386 folder to C:\
    Go into C:\i386 folder and double click on winnt32.exe to launch the setup from the hard drive

    Boot with a Windows 98 Start Up disk
    Insert the Windows 98 CD into the CD reader
    Run smartdrv.exe from the Win98 directory on the windows 98 CD (file caching)
    Type cd.. to back up to the root directory
    Insert Windows XP CD into the CD reader
    Copy the i386 folder to C:\

    Not working


    Do a file search for cmd.exe and then you can create a shortcut on your desktop pointing to it and then in double quotes put the location of the application you are trying to execute, ie.. It should be located on c:\windows\system32 - cmd.exe

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe - in Properties Target and put this in double quotes and then your application with the full path in double quotes after that.

    Sound Card


    EFICMgr:

    Your original solution was provided by jrdtechnet, and if you wish further contact directly with that expert, it is best to do so as a further post on your original issue. Alternatively, you should see that expert listed on your profile page. Clicking on their link will send you to ask this question directly of them.

    I am not experienced with PCI32, but the solution I find most helpful in regard to drivers is as follows. (The system basically does the work for you, and you should not have to do anything but what you are instructed within the process.):

    Since detecting the type of equipment you have, and its numerous technical specifications, can be quite difficult, it may be easiest to use a site that will scan your system and determine the updates needed. Three available sites: www.driveragent.com, www.drivers.com, and www.drivershq.com. You may find this more helpful than trying to search for one individual driver, as that can be very difficult. If none of these things helps, please post back as to the outcome of the above. Otherwise, thanks for rating FixYa!

    Sound card driver


    I did a search of your FCC ID # and nothing was returned. It could not identify your product. Please be more specific. Was there no model #? Also, the main chip (usually the biggest) should have a model number. Try finding that.

    By the way, to search FCC ID #'s, go here: https://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/oetcf/eas/reports/GenericSearch.cfm
