I recently installed Windows XP to my PC and my sound has been lost. I know I need to reinstall the drivers but its a monitor with built in speakers and the make of the monitor is Relisys. Ive looked on google for Relysis sound drivers, does anyone know what I need to do to get my sound up and running again?

Howdy:

You need the drivers for your soundcard NOT for the monitor.. Thses could be located on either the systemboard driver cd you got with your system or on a separate driver disk if the card is an add-on.

Prior to installing XP, did you run the compatibility check to make sure everything on your system was compatible with XP??

Okay.. could be one of two different ones.. try this one first (you will have to unzip the download)..

if that one doesn't work, it could be this one.. they don't make an XP driver for this card but the Win2000 driver should work..

Okay.. right click on the "multimedia audio controller" in Device Manager and select "Properties".. Now, use the option to install or update the driver and point it to where you unzipped on of the drivers I gave you..
