You need to install the drivers for your audio (sound) device(s).

What is the make and model# of your computer?

Howdy:

Try the DRIVER from Emachines.

You will have to unzip it and then either go into Device Manager and update the driver or, if there is a .exe or install file, run that.

Anything showing in Device Manager?

Did you check to see if the sound was muted?

Going to ask the obvious here, but are the speakers working and are you plugging them into the proper port?

From what I can see, none of those drivers are for XP but try "Setup (InstallShield Setup Launcher)"
