If you are able to, get hold of a Linux live CD (Ubuntu (to download and burn from www.ubuntu.org), for example, which costs nothing), and see if the sound functions correctly. This will help to rule out hardware failure, while not needing to fiddle with XP just yet.
If sound works under linux (or you were unable to test it), then what you can do is enter device manager, and scan for hardware changes. Failing that, choose to install legacy hardware.
Sorry if this doesnt help, i realise it is a little generic.

I am unable to do that
Can I ask why you are unable to do a Linux live cd?
Is it due to not having any cd's to make the live cd?

I tried the device manager, and everything appears to be working correctly. No yellow or red x's of any sort.
Can you get a screenshot of your Device Manager?
To do a screenshot please have click on your Print Screen on your keyboard. It is normally the key above your number pad between the F12 key and the Scroll Lock key
Now go to Start and then to All Programs
Scroll to Accessories and then click on Paint
In the Empty White Area click and hold the CTRL key and then click the V
Go to the File option at the top and click on Save as
Save as file type JPEG and save it to your Desktop
Attach it to your next reply

To get to bios you would usually click the Del button on the first post (Black) screen where it is counting up memory.

If so then the problem is for sure a faulty sound card and a replacement is the resolution.
You stated you even downloaded the drivers... What drivers are you referring to.
