<_< i formatted my pc and re-installed back to out of box state and now i`ve got no sound. gone into device manager and there is no sound, video and controller topic. re-installed sound drivers that came with pc but none of them work. gone into bios setup to enable sound but can`t find anything. looked inside pc and there is a chip with creative soundblaster written on it.

welcome to geektogo
your looking at the right thing your sound card most likely dose not have the right sound card drivers can you gave us the model and make of your card if not can you open the case like you did before and gave us all the # you can find on the card and off the chip where creative is then I can look it up to see what card you have. then we can find the drivers you need.

AIDA32 is a very useful tool for identifying components without opening the case, and it often includes a link to the drivers.

Belarc Adivsor will also list your components, it's a little easier to use, but not as powerful.
