That information is a little bit thin to go on, care to expand on that. Like the make and model of the motherboard and sound card.

By "won't load sound card" do you mean the drivers for the card?

If this is a dedicated sound card and this motherboard has a onboard card you may need to disable the onboard card in the BIOS.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I went into BIOS and disabled on board sound.
MOBO is ASUS M5A78MLX. I cannot load the drivers.

I still could use the make and model of the sound card.

Are you using a disc that came with the sound card to install the drivers?

If not, where are you getting the drivers?

Using Philips PSC605 cd. The drivers are listed as XP. I cannot find them on the cd and the cpu doesn't recognise the hardware.

No way to know whether a card of that age will work with Win7. Philips provide drivers from Win98SE to XP:

This is a good choice. I agree completely with Platypus.
