Hi Benja,

Its easy to resolve this problem you have just to follow my instructions:

  • When you format your computer and install new OS you have in Windows XP to introduce drivers to the new OS.
  • So what you have to do now is installing drivers for missing drivers like sound in your case.
  • Windows XP install Automatically some drivers like video card.
  • But some other no.

What you have to do is:

  • Click right button mouse> Go to Proprieties> Hardware> Device Manager click right mouse button in missing driver> then click update.

Follow screen instructions put CD/DVD of your driver wait installation of drivers finish.

  • You might overlooked the steps and changes you have made. What you need to do is to rewind the steps changes and analyzed the problem.
  • Sound card will not work if it is not detected by the computer. Try look for the switch to plug into your sound card and this has to be selected as default output device.
  • Use the Sound card utility installed in your computer to check the sound card settings, speaker, microphone and other devices installed.
  • Go to Start, Control Panel, Hardware and Sound.
  • Select Manage Audio Devices and make sure the configuration is correct.

Once the management sound card utility is configure, try turn on the and check if sound card is working.

When formatting a computer, sound card driver usually comes with the package. But if you don't hear any sounds, then the most possible reason is you do not have the correct driver for your sound card. To check if you have one, follow the steps below:

You need to be logged as the Administrator to be able to perform the following steps.

1. Click the Start button and then go to Control Panel.

2. Click System and Maintenance and then go to the Device Manager. If you will be asked for the Administrator password or ask to confirm the action, type the password or confirm it.

3. Go to Sound, video and game controllers. Double-click to expand it. If there is a sound card listed there, you have it installed. If none or if you see a yellow question mark beside the sound card, you will need to install it or the driver for it.

4. Ensure that the speakers are properly plugged in and working.

5. Adjust the speaker volume. Click Start and go to Control Panel. Click on Hardware and Sound. Go to the Audio Devices and Sound and then click Adjust System Volume. And then move the slider up on the Main Volume.
