Click start then control panel then sounds, speech, audio then sounds and audio

Look at the audio tab to check the midi playback is set to use the soundcard you have, click apply if you change anything

Unless you can change the soundcard easily and quickly, I would prefer to test the software for the Sony Programme, I once spent ages trying to get their sonic stage stuff to work, never did
