1. Open your computer
2. Put the sound card in a slot that it'll fit in.
3. Power up the computer
4. When the computer detects the new hardware, insert the disc or such, and install the drivers.
5. Test the sound, by using the volume control. If you hear the default sound, the sound card is working.
6. Cover the computer back up.

Sound card is now installed.
