After removing SB LIve card and all the Creative folders, disabling and trying to load latest drivers from SIS.
Enabled onboard audio in the Bios "Features", I still get no sound at all.

Sound and Audio Devices shows No Audio Device.
Device Manager, Other Devices shows a question mark in front of "Multimedia audio controller."

Re-installed XP Pro. Still no sound.

Any help would indeed be appreciated.

XP Pro
Athlon 1600+
ECS Mobo
SIS chip

Thanks for getting back to me so soon, Keith.

Everest Home tells me that the Mobo is: ECS K7S5A, with the SIS735 chipset, the Multimedia Adapter is SIS 7012 Audio Driver.
I have already downloaded: a12112d.zip as well as 7012106.zip and 9738xp021.zip.
a12112d.zip opens nicely with an install shield wizzard, but stops part way with the message: "The name is already in use as either a service name or a display name."

Update: This morning I started the computer and tried the Install Shield Wizzard again and Lo and Behold it proceeded, installing the drivers and now I have an Audio Device listed in the Control Panel, Sound and Audio. ------ Altho the speakers still don't work.
I've gone through the routine of checking that nothing was muted.

Maybe the next time I restart, all will be well :--)
Maybe I should load the 7012106 and 9738xp021 also.

We're getting there.

Set a restore point before downloading and installing this

Get this one
