:) :) Every time I start up my barely two month old Dell Laptop with Windows Vista is has a pop that says [No Sound Card Found! Unable to do the streaming]. nothings wrong with my sound though... The popup opens at least 10 new boxes everytime I start up my computer and it opens every once and a while randomly and also popsup when I try to open iTunes and sometimes after I click okay it doesn't start iTunes.


Whats wrong my my sound card/virtual wave driver?

It sounds like you need drivers for the sound card. Is the sound listed in device manager? Can you go to the Dell website and see if you can download the sound drivers there. Then uninstall any sound drivers in add/remove programs if it is there. If they are not in add/remove programs, you can delete the sound card in device manager and restart the computer. Windows will prompt you with a found new hardware window if the sound is working. You will need to ignore the prompt, close it, and then double click on the sound drivers exe file you downloaded from the dell website. A reboot of the computer should have your sound working again.
