hi
i am really really stuck, i have just reinstalled XP to my PC and now i do not have any sound, even when i go into the sound settings they are greyed out and it states there are no sound drivers... i am really stuck and do not know what to do???

i also realised that it wasnt picking up my graphics card but i managed to find a driver for this and reinstall it..

i have looked through the system and it states that on my motherboard the audio is NVIDIA MCP51 - high def audio controller
video chipset Nvidia geforce 7300GS (G72)
motherboard chip set Nvidia geforce 6100 (C51)

dont know if that makes much difference in trying to solve this problem, but i know i have had enough and am close to putting a hammer through my computer

any help would be greatly appreicated

thanks

Hello and welcome to the forum :wave:

We can get you going but need more information . . Is this a Branded pc or custom made?

If Custom, what brand and model is the motherboard?

Your motherboard is an ASUS A8N-VM. You need to download the sound drivers for this motherboard UNLESS you have a seperate stand-alone sound card installed.

You should have recieved some disks with the computer, such as a XP disk and a motherboard disk. All the drivers on the motherboard disk will need to be installed after a fresh XP install.
