If the program files are in windows.old, then you didn't upgrade but rather
made a clean install of Vista. Programs would need to be reinstalled under
the new operating system. You can't just drag them over from the old install
Your sound card requires a supporting driver. You should check with the
system manufacturer for those. If you know the motherboard or sound card
manufacturer, you can try their web site as well.
