My computer can't detect my sound card

Specs: Windows XP
One day, the sound suddenly cut out. Since then, it hasn't worked. I had the same dilemma before, but then miraculously, the sound came back. The sound stayed for quite a while, a few months, then it went out again about 2 days ago. Since then, it hasn't worked.

I plugged my speakers into my phone and it worked. So the problem cannot be the speakers. I looked in my Device Manager and I can't find the driver. I tried installing the sound driver, but it tells me this:

"Setup is unable to detect a supported product on your system. Please ensure that your product is properly installed before running this Setup program."

So, my computer isn't detecting the sound card.

Btw, I'm running Windows XP. My sound card is Sound Blaster Live! 24-bit

Anyone have any ideas or clues?

Either your sound card is bad or you're using the wrong driver. Did you move the case at all? Any possibility that the card isn't fully seated in it's slot?
