    hey,
    My computer has Microsoft Windows 95 , and the sound blaster is Creative Sound Blaster 16 Plug and Play. Is that all you needed to know? Im not very skilled in working with computers, so if u need more information, you might need to direct me how to get it. Thanks for your help.

    The first thing I would do is install a newer version of Internet Explorer. Either 5.01 SP2 or 5.5 SP2.

    Let's check the Windows drivers that you do have. Go into Control Panel / click on ADD Hardware / next / next / When asked,
    choose "No, I want to select my hardware from a list".

    Then scroll down the page and click on Sound, video, Games---

    A menu will appear showing all the manufacturers of Sound cards on the left.....scroll down to Creative and click on it. A list will appear on the right part of the page and you can most likely find your sound card and subsequent drivers there.

    If not, install a new IE version.

    Let me know.
