Sound Blaster Sound card

By moor2442 ·
I have a Creative labs Ensoniq Sound Blaster AudioPCI 64V sound card that I have tried to install the drivers for in an 400Mhz K6-2 , 64Mb System.And keep receiving a message that says the drivers I am about to install are not for the sound card, after going to Creatives site and downloading the drivers as well as the installation disk that came with the card.Everything had worked fine before,but due to a hard drive failure had to start all over,and to no avail I have no sound what so ever . The speakers are known good and plugged into to the power source...This thing is really getting on my nerves so any help would be GREATLY !!!! appreciated
Thank-you (in advance) for any help you may provide
Ps:.. Also get a error message about configmg.vxd and code#2

Sound Blaster Sound card

Start by removing the sound card and unknow devices from device manager.

Shut down the PC, and remove the sound card.

Download and install the chipset drivers for your PC / motherboard / chipset.
If you need help identifying where to downloadthe drivers, check out the mobo id tools at either www.motherboards.org
or www.wimsbios.com

After installing the motherboard drivers, boot the PC at least 1 more time after it stops finding new devices with each boot.

Download and install DirectX from Microsoft

Shutdown, and install the soundcard.

When you re-boot, windows should be able to properly identify the card, and install the drivers.

If you have XP on this system, be sure to install the XP patch from Creative.

One other thing to addd to chas's, do you have on board sound on the motherboard? If so make sure it's disabled in bios or with a jumper to the motherboard. Otherwise it's well layed out above!
Good Luck
