Sound card

By handymanxxx ·
I have a Creative/Ensoniq 3DWave sound card in my machine that I need to install. I have tried downloading several drivers from different sites and every time I run the programs I get a message telling me to insert the ensoniq cd, which of course I do not have. Can someone please help me determine the correct driver and to correctly install it. I admit to being a moron here. I am absolutely lost.
Thanks.

Find the Ensoniq chip on the card with the number on it. A great place to get drivers when you know the chipset is driversguide.com.

When asking for the CD what file is it showing that needs to be loaded,you may need to load all files associated with the card.
Try the following sites
www.ensoniq.com
http://www.icq.com/icqlist/Audio/EnsoniqSoundCardS.htm
www.winfiles.com
http://www.creativelabs.com/sound

Well, creative includes a driver that is supposed to encompass all versions of this card, but have the number on this chip handy anyways...

here is the link in text format for creative/ensoniq pci sound:

www.creative.com/support/files/download.asp

There are also installation directions included at this link...download those as well and follow...

Good luck, do this a few more times and you will no longer view yourself as a moron....
(hey, there are worse things in life...)
