A number of options spring to mind

1. Physically open the machine and see if the card has anything written on it.
2. If you have built in sound on your motherboard check the manual for sound specifications.
3. If only the sound apps were removed then the drivers may still be installed, check your control panel under 'sound'
4. If they have been completely uninstalled run the add hardware wizard and see if it picks the sound system up.

Also look at the manuals about your sound card model, and then to its website. It could be built in. And follow the other guy's suggestion, run up the recovery disc, it might pick it up, unless you install in another OS.

You need to look at the sound card to find out what drivers. Here's a link to Packbell sound driver files

Hi,
Please follow these instruction to resolve the issue. Win 9x and win2000
* Click on start-settings-control panel.
* Double click on system
* Click on device manager(win95)or Harware -
Device manager (win2000).
* Double click on sound controller.
* Remove the sound devices in the list.
* Restart the computer and it will prompt you for
the installation. It should also show you the
name of the device. It might find the drivers
by itself other wise you need to point the
location to the following.
C:\windows\system
c:\windows\options\cabs
for 2000
C:\winnt\system32
C:\winnt\system32\drivers

It will notify if the drivers are installed fine.

Thanks
