Windows 7: No Sound after install - HELP to find compatible driver

No Sound after install - HELP to find compatible driver

i just installed win 7 ultimate 32-bit and have no more sound. i fried my onboard sound so i used an old soundcard(this was before the install) and forgot where the driver is. i found out it is an OEM compaq soundcard made by creative called audio pci 5200(?).

with some research i tried to install drivers but its incompatible with win 7. i also tried the windows update and it found Creative AudioPCI (ES1371,ES1373) (WDM), but could not install it. checking the properties it said it does have enough free resources and i need to disable another device. (?)

edit:[ This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12)

If you want to use this device, you will need to disable one of the other devices on this system.]

it shows the name up there (Creative...) under sound, video and game controllers in the Device Manager.

can anyone please help?

thanks. i'd rather not go shopping for another soundcard compatible with windows 7

Try this driver but I don't think that your audio device supports windows 7: creative audio pci es1371 es1373 wdm driver (Creative Labs) 7, Vista, XP, download

Fill in your system specs with the help of HWInfo32 and the drivers guide in my sig - do you have any other devices connected to your system? Also, disable unused ports in your BIOS such as COM, serial, parallel to free up IRQ's.
