Dorothy...

From what you posted, it sounds like there is some conflict going on. If you get a "your sound card may be in use", it could be a couple things.

1. Your drivers may be messed up. Reinstall them. (yes, i can help with that)

2. Some program is running in the background and messing up your sound. Do you get a startup sound when windows starts?

It really sounds more like 1 than 2 though.

The reason you can play music cd's is that your sound card doesn't go through windows to play music cd's. It goes directly from the cd player to sound card to speakers. So, the conflict is bypassed.
