Soundcard duff or not!

  User-E70658AE-BDD7-4DD5-AE5EE3B7769D7D2C 11:19 10 Jan 2006

I'm running a Evesham desktop with XP home and have a home wireless network and a surround sound system. My soundcard seems to have packed up (I have checked all the speaker connections) is there a way of checking definitively whether it has in fact gone duff or, do I have to accept that it probably has. Sometimes (but not often) a window pops up to tell me that it is not installed, however device manager indicates that it is.

Any pointers please

When in Device Manager, uninstall the device. Do a hard reboot, and Windows will detect it again. Have the installation disc ready just in case Windows asks for it.
