    There is no way that we can determine which driver you should be installing?

     

    You need to ask the maker of the audio card that you have installed for this information. Make sure that the audio card and the driver are Vista compatible. They should also have the instructions for installing the driver.

     

    You can check for compatibility on the following website.

     

    Windows Vista Compatibility Center:
    http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/

     

    Hope this helps.

    Go to Start and type  msino32  in the search box. Press Enter.

     

    Expand 'Components' in the left menu and select 'Sound Device'. This should show the detailed information. If you still cannot determine the device, contact the maker of the computer.

     

    Hope this helps.

  • Hey Ronnie,

     

    Thank you for the quick reply.  I have no idea what type of sound card I have.  I went intot the device manager but it is just very generic with only one tab on the properties which is "general"  Any thoughts?

     

    Thanks,

    Michael
