I bought a sound card from Creative and I've installed it into my PCI slot. Drivers have been installed, and my computer is working fine; sound is coming perfectly from the card. Power supply is fine, more than enough to power it. If you want my specifications:
CPU: Pentium 4 531 @ 3.0GHz (fine, the computer may be old but I've been trying to solve this problem for awhile)
RAM: 1 GB DDR2
Graphics: GMA 950
Sound (PCI sound card): Creative Sound Blaster Live! Model CT4830
Despite successfully installing the sound blaster, I am still unable to use the sound blaster sound effects and in game music. Any help is appreciated.
EDIT: Argh, crap I forgot sbouy DosBOX, well, I might give that a try....silly me.
