Hi group,

I did a new installation of XP home on an AMD Duron and now while XP boots up totally fine, there is no sound. I checked the control panel under sounds and audio devices and apparently there is no device listed for either sound playback or sound recording. There is a default device called MPU-401 under 'MIDI music playback'. When I did the XP installation, I deleted the partition containing 2000 pro and I suspect I may have deleted some essential drivers. There were no sound problems in windows 2000 before the XP installation. So I have tried to download a couple of XP drivers but have not been able to install them for unkown reason. I looked under C-Media AC97 audio device drivers which I believe is the correct device? Perhaps it is not what I am looking for?

Any ideas?

You currently do not have sound drivers installed. If using on-board sound, which I think you are, go to your motherboard manufacturer's website and download the audio drivers for your OS for your board there.

There are two kinds of people in the computing world.....those who have lost data, and those who will.
If your data is worth anything, back it up!

If you don't know what mobo you have got, then you could download 'everest' from here' ">, that should also tell you what 'soundcard' you are using. Once you have this info then you should be able to d'load the appropriate driversfrom your mobo manufacturers or from '' see my 'sig'!

Good luck

Is this a manufacturer computer, or home built, keeping a detailed log of every harware change before and after operating changes is a good idea, treat your computer like your car when it comes to repares. Everest like the guy posted above will help you most likely, I would mabye recomend to buy a cheap sound card eg a pci creative labs 16bit
