hmm...speakers are always a good place to start make sure they are plugged in(power cord if any) and also plugged into the back of the computer into the right slot in the soundcard. They might be plugged into the microphone slot or something.

Also if you see that your cd is actually playing but no sound, check the master volume on the computer and make sure its not muted.

those are basic things...do you think it might be more complicated??? you didn't give much detail.

Beat your cuz senseless with a baseball bat for stealing all your 'puter stuff. (J/K!)

Yeah... getting the drivers from the company site is the best you can do for now without your cuz's help.

Why did your cuz take your soundcard and then put it back but not install it?

As long as the model is the same the version shouldn't be too important. In fact I suppose the newest stable drivers for the card would be best.

Is compaq the company that makes SoundMax cards? Just making sure - lol

Anyway, why did your cuz take the card out, uninstall the drivers, reinstall the card, and not the drivers???

do not touch drivers (yet). go to windows' volume control and make sure that everything isn't muted.

go to Winamp preferences / plug-ins / output, select "Nullsoft waveOut plug-in", click configure and tell us what output devices appear on the list.

hmm... don't you have win98 CD ? try looking for win98 setup dir on your hdd... it seems that you are trying to install default win98 drivers instead of new (downloaded) ones.

Not unless the cab files were actually placed on her hdd will she be able to complete the set-up....if her cousin didn't even know about drivers...i doubt he actually loaded them onto her computer...thus...installation will not be completed...

hmm...let me see...illegal win98 cds??? not at the top of my list but you might want to check this site out for those files if you aren't planning on getting your cd back anytime soon...

they MIGHT...i'm not sure...but it never hurts to look...
