How do I install my SoundBlaster Sound Card?

A. A. If you have one of the newer Plug and Play Sound Blaster cards then the install is simple.

  1. Insert the NT installation CD
  2. Goto the drvlib\pnpisa\x86 directory
  3. Right click on the pnpisa.inf file and select install
  4. Reboot the Machine
  5. Once restarted NT will detect any ISA PnP devices including your Sound Card, the drivers are on the CD in directory drvlib\audio\sbpnp\i386

If you have one of the older non-PNP sound cards download the file awent40.exe and follow the instructions that come with the file once expanded.
