installing soundcard

  SheenaRead 11:35 16 Mar 2004

I seem to be having a problem with installing a soundcard on my old computer. I have followed the manufacturers instructions on installing and when I get to the end I come up with a message saying could not install the soundcard and error code 69. Can you advise me what this error code is and how I can correct it.

It sometimes takes a few tries to install device drivers, especially with xp. Use Aida32 to properly identify it click here

Thank you Michelle C for your comments. You state it takes a few goes to install the drivers, I know because I have tried several times but no joy, still the same error code 69 message. I am using Windows98SE does that make a difference. Can you or anyone tell me what error code 69 is?

Without knowing what the soundcard is makes it impossible to make any sense of Error 69...:-)

When you know what make and model either post back or try the manufacturer's website support pages.

Thank you Stuartli. It is a Hercules Muse Lt soundcard and I have contacted the manufactures but they have not come up with an answer as yet.
