Hi,
Sound card is the hardware device used for generating and capturing sounds, usually it is a card installed on a PCI slot or an integrated device on the mainboard but there are USB devices too (or older ISA cards, etc). You need an audio driver to make it work, the driver can be included in the OS or installed separately.

If this is what you would like to know, please rate my post, otherwise give us more details.

Regards,
Andras

Hello breonna, hi, a sound card is a device or a circuit board on a card where this plugs on a PCI slot on a motherboard. This card produces sound and sends the sound to a speaker for amplification. WHAT IS A SOUND CARD? - a1240a2.jpg

SOUND CARD REPLACMENT


On a desktop it's easy to replace the sound card. Remove the power cord, open the case then purchase a PCI Sound card that will fit into one of the PCI Slots. You present sound card might be what is called an on board sound card (which is built into the motherboard). You won't touch the onboard sound card, you will simply add a pci sound card.

I can't hear nay sound in my PC,been downloading a lot of audio driver and installer but still i can't make it sound. what to do?what could be the perfect software where i can make my device sound?


It's either your sound card is defective or you are not using the correct sound card device driver. You must state the brand/model of your sound card if this a extension card or state your motherboard model if the sound card is on board. If your unit is branded, you should be able to download this from the manufacturer's website.
If your sound card is defective, just replace the sound card. If its on board the motherboard, disable it from the BIOS and buy an extension card.

How to install a sound card


1. Locate na expansion slot in your computer that will accept your sound card.
2.Gently place the sound card on top of the slot. Line up the pins on the sound card with the slot and push the card down so that it sits in the slot. Be sure that the card is securely in the slot and pushed all the way in.
3.If your computer has an audio cable that connects the CD-ROM drive directly to the sound card, locate it and plug it in to the card. Consult the documentation that came with your sound card to determine the location of the CD-ROM audio connector on the card. This cable is rarely necessary with current audio hardware.MORE INFO.IN NEXT SLOT

No sound from the card.


This can happen for several reasons. I am guessing that you have the sound card and driver software installed correctly.
Many times this is caused by Windows not using the new card as the default Sound card. Since you have not mentioned what operating system you are using and didnt mention if you have an onboard sound card with the new card, take a look at the instructions on the page below. It gives instructions on how to set the new sound card as the default card.
