The most probable reaosn is no drivers since you loaded windows on the system.
That being said lets see if the system even sees a sound device
Go to
start>right click on my computer> properties> hardware tab>device manager

Is anything in the list showing yellow exclamation marks?

Hi my name is Cbarnard,
Rshaffer61 is out right now, we take shifts lol :)
I'll pick up were he left off for now.

yeah there are 2 ( Ethernet Controller and PCI device.


Click Start> Control Panel > System > Hardware tab > Device Manager

scroll down to the the Ethernet controller right click on it and go to properties

does it state that the device is not working properly? If so,

does it give you the opportunity to "Roll back the driver?" If yes, please roll it back, did this fix your Ethernet connectivity, if you had problems with it?

If not (which I suspect) Then you will need to install the driver.
Do you have the driver cd that came with the laptop, if not don't worry.

What brand and model laptop is it?


What is the PCI device installed currently in the slot, a wireless wifi card? What ever is installed do you have the driver cd for it?

Post back with that information, and we will move on to the PCI device.

Good luck,
Cbarnard
