    I've got NT 4.0. I put in a sound card, loaded the drivers, but the system does not seem to recognize the hardware. When I look in multimedia devices, the audio driver is listed. However, it says that the driver is enabled but has not been started. When I go to devices, I can click on the driver, when I click on "start" to start the driver, I get an error 0087: parameter is incorrect.

    I don't have any sound. Any ideas?

    Steve has a good point but we also need more information.

    What make and model sound card to you have?

    Did you install the driver first or the sound card first?

    What is the name and version of the driver you installed?

    Please answer each question so we can help you.
