Hi all,
hope some1 can help me here...

my friend got me to reinstall windows due to a lot of stuff (spyware etc.) on her pc...
knowing that she didn't have the drivers, i installed XP SP2 for her thinking that it'll auto install all the drivers it needs.
i've since found out that isn't the case and the sound doesn't work now.

checked in device manager and has a yellow exclamation on "multimedia audio controller"

the sound card for this system is one of those integrated with the mother card... the chip it's using is a AMD Athlon XP 2000+ (not sure if any help)

i've tried looking for sound drivers of the AMD site but can't find or looking for the wrong thing...

am i looking for a driver for specifically for the sound or something for the whole motherboard?

any help/suggestions greatly appreciated...
links to drivers would be even better Wink

thanx

You will want the drivers for the motherbaord since its on-board sound

Download Belarc Advisor, it builds a detailed profile of your installed software and hardware, including Microsoft Hotfixes, and displays the results in your Web browser. All of your PC profile information is kept private on your PC and is not sent to any web server.
Check in the results for your motherboard and search for the sound drivers.

thanx for the advice geekgirl but i got it working in the end after i finally found out what model number the motherboard was...

after searching for it on the motherboard itself for ages, i finally found it written on the inside cover (that I took off) of the tower Smiley DOH!!
