Download and run Everest Home click here


Click on "Computer" and select "Summary" then scroll down until you find the audio card make/model.If you also post the motherboard make/model and chipset on here we can point you to the drivers you need.

Try Unknown Devices at click here and Si-Sandra from click here to identify the sound card.

A legacy audio device will almost always be an ISA card and as such can be a nightmare to set-up as you don't always know what IRQ and DMA settings to use. It is worth trying Creatives Soundblaster compatable drivers as many sound cards will work on these.

Also, if it is a removable card, find the FCC ID number and look it up on click here though at the time of posting, this site appears to be down!

Did you select the correct operating system? Also did it extract to a temporary file somewhere and you need to run it from there?

i selected operating system when downloading, cause its a zipped file had to unzip first then i tried to install from there by clicking on the install icon.
It came up with an error during instalation, saying instalation cannot be completed.

Not sure what im doing wrong?

hope someone can still help?
thanx
