I'm sure installing "the" sound card for the first time is a simple process. I just don't know what it is. Can someone list the steps for me, please. Windows XP home.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Hello and welcome to the forum!

There really is no such thing as a generic sound card driver.
There are hundreds,if not thousands, of variations of sound cards and chipsets on them.

What is the make/model of the system?
If it is a custom ssytem what sound card do you have?

Edit: Also, please clarify.
Are you installing a new sound card or do you just need to install the drivers for an existing one?

In the beginning there was the command line.

Its an older system... MSI Intel 865PE/G Neo2 April 2003

Windows XP Home

I've gone to the Hardware setup but didn't know I needed the specific driver for the sound card. I'll have to find which card I have and then download the driver for it. Thank you.
