Sounds like you need to load the sound card driver.
If your sound card is not integrated into the motherboard (ie its a PCI card), then you could remove the card & look for a make/model number on it. Go to manufacturers website & download driver.

If it is integrated, find your motherboard make & model, go to their website & download driver

If none of this works, it could be a resourse conflict issue. But don't worry about that until you've tried the above suggestions first.

When you first installed XP (or at any point since) did windows detect the sound card at all? (Often detects as a multimedia device rather than sound card).

Look in device manager & tell me if :

1. There are any multimedia devices installed & if so, does XP report them as functioning or as having a problem?

2. Are there any unknown devices listed in device manager (these will normally have a yellow exclaimation mark next to them)


If the answer to all of the above questions is NO, then check in the bios to see if audio device has been disabled (this assumes your s/c is integrated, which it probably is)
