    I am running windows 98. I had to format my hard drive and do a clean install. Everything went find, had sound, got the printer, scanner working but at the time windows 98 didn't have my drivers for my video card. I was told that the best thing to do was have a quick peek inside to get the name which I did (very carefully) I didn't touch anything inside closed her back up and plugged everything back in. When I started up I noticed in the start up that there was an error #9 could not find a device sound drivers not loaded. When I got into windows it didn't pick up any sound card. I tried to manually get windows to find it to no avail, its like there is no card in my computer but I know there is. Anyone know what went wrong.

    Well, when you say you "didn't touch anything" you may have inadvertently without even knowing it. Try reseating your card and/or changing slots (to see if maybe the slot your sound card occupies went south, it happens).

    Just remember, i could be wrong.
