I bought a bare bones computer and had to put it together. The Sound card was built onto the motherboard and was supposed to be a very good one. When I was finished putting the computer together, I loaded Windows XP and the files that came on a CD with the computer and all was well except the sound wouldn't work. I found out that I had to get Windows Service Pack 2 and load it and then I was able to reload the CD that came with the computer and it worked perfectly.

Is it a card in a PCI slot? If so does your motherboard already have a soundcard? You'll have to disable it if so to make the PCI card one active. Having 2 sound cards confuses windows, you need to tell it which to use...
To disable the onboard either look in the bios settings or go to device manager, find the soundcard in the relevant section and then right click - disable it...
If that's the case it should be ok but try loading up windows media player and going to the preferences seeing which sound card it is trying to use. Usually if you can get media player working everything else will work
If you've installed XP from a Windows disc not dedicated to your PC, (not a recovery disc), then it probably is lacking certain drivers specific to your computer. It's a very old computer, drivers are likely missing from your install.
In your Start menu search type "Device Manager". Open DM and click the + next to "Sound, video and game controllers". You might see a next to your soundcard. Double click your soundcard and note "Device status" under "General" tab. Got to "Driver" tab and click "Update Driver..." If it says you have the best driver installed, uninstall the driver from there, and try "Update Driver..." again.
I doubt the speakers need a driver. Is there output from the soundcard? Connect the speakers to an alternate audio source, such as the headphone jack of a CD player or radio. If the speakers produce sound, the problem is probably with your soundcard. Recheck your soundcard installation and setup procedure. Consult the sound card’s manual. Check the “mute” and “volume” controls on your soundcard or media player software and keyboard. Are the speakers connected properly? Make sure the plugs are securely connected in the proper location according to their colorcoding and the diagram on th front of this manual. Make sure the left speaker wire with the white stripe is connected to the (+) speaker terminal on the subwoofer.
