Iíve seen this posted on a few forums, but none seemed to help me exactly. Any help would be much appreciated.

I recently got given my brothers old computer, which I have formatted and re-installed windows xp, and now the sound does not work at all. When I go to sounds and audio device properties it says there is no audio device. I followed the windows trouble shooter and it told me to check whether I had the MCI CD audio media control device driver, so I uninstalled the media control devices drivers and re-installed them, which only left me with one driver; mciqtz32.dll.

I have tried updating my soundcard drivers, which is additional to the OB one, but I don't know what soundcard it is. IT says it is a 'Creative SBLive! Gameport' but the creative website says this card doesnít exist, and has no drivers available. My brother has long since lost the box and drivers of the card.

Also a new hardware wizard always comes up when I start up the computer, with two 'multimedia audio controller' and one 'RAID controller' It can't find the drivers automatically, and it can't find them on the Windows disk either.

I have tried many different things to fix this, and all have failed.

Thank you in advance to anyone who can help me on this.

Usually, when people have this problem it is because they have not installed the motherboard drivers that come with the motherboard.

If you do not have a driver CD, you can find the drivers in the support section of the M/B manufacturer's web-site.

Second, verify that the sound is enabled in BIOS.
