Question about Computers & Internet
Hi, Firstly if your sound card is not detected then either it needs to be re-seated or it has failed. Is the sound you have an actual card plugged into your motherboard or is it what we call "on board" so actually built in to the motherboard. If it is then you have a problem.
If it is an actual card you can open the box, make sure you will not be voiding any warranty you may have on the machine, then you can carefully unscrew the screw holding the sound card firm and pull the card from it's connectors quite firmly. So long as you don't twist or bend it you will not damage it.
Repeat the actions only in reverse to re-seat the card and screw back in firmly. ( If this does not get Windows XP to detect the card you could try another connector slot if you have one.)
Ok now to the drivers, once the card is detected WinXP will ask for the drivers if it does have them. You can follow the installation wizard and point to where you will have placed the downloaded files.
Ok downloading, can you tell me what the sound card is and then I should be able to tell you where you can download them from?
Let me know
