Problems with a sound card

A friend of mine has a sound card that stopped working recently. She says that Windows XP can't find any sound card. It had been working correctly and there were no changes to the system. I don't have a lot of information, but I was wondering if there were any generic solutions to this kind of problem. Thanks for your help.

Windows XP automatically installed the driver for an Intel(r) 82801BA/BAM AC'97 Audio Controller when she uninstalled the old driver. Somebosy else was helping her then, so i wasn't able to check to see if what the old driver was for.

I now know for a fact that the Intel card that I mentioned above is the same driver that she had before uninstalling the driver also. The computer is a laptop, could the sound card have come loose by being bumped. Or is it integrated with the mother board?

well, i'm sure it's built into the motherboard. does it show anything in device manager? any (!)'s or anything? any devices under "sound, video and game controllers"?

Foung this at another forum>

code 10 usually means the driver isn't installed. and the Crystal Wave sound chip should be noticed by W2K as the driver is integrated in the OS. It looks like you have a conflict somewhere else that is not allowing the Sound card to be detected.
You could try disabling Sound in Bios, rebooting, then turn sound back on in bios and see if automatically detects it, otherwise the drivers for the Sound card should be on the ILD CD or in the i386 folder.

You might get something out of it.

get to Device Manager > Problem device > propeties > driver > driver rollback or uninstall button. try to load the old driver and start over with new driver install...

Good Luck,
