Went and got myself a windows XP home edition cd and formatted both my PC's. Everyting went well and everything works perfectly with my laptop. Problem is my PC can't play sounds. When I go into control panel under audio settings, I can't change any settings because "no audio device". The only sounds I hear is beeping from the internal speaker. Also, I can't even playback some of windows sounds such as error sounds or startup sounds. When running add hardware option, windows doesn't detect any new hardware.
I am not sure what sound card I have. Why is it that the laptop works perfectly without me doing anything, and both having windows XP home?
And where do you install a audio device? I tried installing Creative Soundblaster 16 but it won't work.
