Well you can get it at the site below, but i think you have a different problem. When you installed the Audigy sound card, did you disable the on-board sound in the BIOS? I will always do this so i do not have problems with drivers , etc. Please state make and model of your computer so i can tell you how to get into the bios to disable the sound. Usually the Delete key will get you to the BIOS and using the ARROW keys you can get to the advanced features where you can find the on-board sound. Hitting the enter key after highlighting the sound in blue by clicking on it will open it up where you can disable it using the left or right arrow keys.


The above link charges you for the file, so be aware of this. The same file can be found in the XP SP2 CD's.
This file goes in C \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS
