I have just reformated my computer a AMD 800 and installed windows xp on it. Its a cheap put together no brand. The built in sound card is not wroking i am sure it is the driver causeing a crakling and popping.

The card is a Creative Audiopci es1371 1373 wdm according to XP also it is called a Creative SB PCI128 (Ensoniq ES5880) Sound Card PCI

I have checked everything i can think of it is running on IRQ 10 and nothing else is on that IRQ I cant seem to find any drivers to help this problem can anyone help...

Thanks

Click start, right click my computer, click properties, hardware, device manager. Look at sound, video and game controllers, click the + and look for anything with a yellow mark, make a note of them, then right click these and click remove, then confirm, click to remove the soundblaster entry regardless of whether it has a tick, click to close device manager then reboot.

When windows has loaded, go back to device manager and check if there are less yellow marks, and that each item you removed is listed

Use the software CD for soundblaster or the motherboard CD if the drivers are on that
