I recently formatted PC and it wiped my sound driver. I do not have the original disc to install it again so I bought a new NISIS-4 sound card. I inserted and installed it, but it says there may still be an onboard sound card enabled. I disabled my onboard sound card but it still didn't work. I think it was because I put it in and installed new sound card BEFORE I uninstalled my original one. So I took new sound card out and the "PCI Audio Driver" is on the add/remove programs list. I try to uninstall it but it says it cant do nothing because it isn't connected or something like that. I don't know what to do.
Also: I installed windows xp pro OEM and it is asking for a product key - I Have 24 days until 'activation' The product key doesnt work when I try to use it cos the disc I have is illegal (It has all systems on it). I may format PC to windows XP Pro Corp which doesn't ask for product key. But I am scared incase it doesn't work and I lose my comp. (Can you format PC as much times as you want? I think i've did it about 10 times!)
