this is going to sound stupid, along with everything else i say :)

on this certain machine when i try to run certain old games, it needs a 100% soundblaster compatible sound card.

well, this problem occurs on two machines, both owned by the same person.

both have onboard sound

both have pretty good soundcards on the motherboard, but are unable to play sounds for certain games.

is there a way to get a new card to play an old game?

it almost seems that the new cards cant do some of the things the old ones could...

that would suck

You might checking the BIOS settings, I know most of the onboard stuff has "soundblaster compatability mode" or something weird like that.. Its been a very long time since I've had to do anything hardware wise, so things might have changed, but thats how I remember it :) And hell you don't sound stupid :D Even the teacher asks questions ;)
