Sound card installation

By Burning_gun ·
I have several Systems which i've upgraded the hardware and transferd the opration system.
The opration system is win98 S.E.
I've removed the ENUM part of the registry and installed the drivers.
The problem is with the sound cards, for some reason it will install only one section of the sound card, no Legacy device and no joystick etc...
this problem occures with different sound cards
The sound card is working if i install a clean system.

How to remove all remains of old sound cards?
Or other way to solve this problem

Thanks

Boot your computer into Safe Mode using the designated key,right-click on My Computer,select Properties, the Device Manager opens go down the list until you get to sound card,click the plus sign,then highlight,click the Remove button,you can also try this in windows using the same instructions.

Check to make sure that you donot have a on board chip by looking at the back on the computer for sound card inputs,this may indicate that you will need to disable the on board sound in the BIOS,then reload the drivers for the sound card that is installed in PCI slot

First, some sound cards install programs that only work with that particular sound card.
Check add/remove programs for programs related to the old sound card.

Sound cards have numerous registry keys and system files.

You should be able to find an ini or inf file for the old sound card.
Now, search for files of the same date.
If you are lucky, you will find all the files related to the sound card.
Note the file names.

Next, use regedit to search the registry for keys related to the old sound card.
CAUTION: Regedit can disable your PC, proceed with do caution.
As you find the errant keys, you will find more terms that you may wish to add to your search.
Once you are comfortable that you have purged the registry of related keys, you should be ready to restart Windows, and re-install your desired sound card.
