XP may not have the required drivers for your sound card, why not go to here
http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/System-Miscellaneous/Driver-Detective.shtml

and download the trial version of driver detective. It will scan your computer for drivers that are needed. It may not let you download them, but it will tell you what drivers are needed, make a note of them then surf the web for the drivers that you need, or you can post back here for help and I will look for them for you.

    I will need more information to help you with your problem, you said that you had no sound! What buttons are you talking about? Try to give me as much information as you can to your actual problem!

    Okay, try this first. Look in the task tray at the bottom right hand side of the screen and see if there is a speaker icon. If there is double click it and it will take you to volume settings. Make sure the volume etc is not set to mute. If it is simply untick the box. If this doesn't resolve your problem the you may need to reinstall the soundcard for XP to pick up. Go to Control panel>system>device manager and right click the soundcard that you are having a problem with and choose uninstall. Once you have done this reboot your computer and it will be picked up as new hardware and XP will attempt to install it. If this works then great, if not then I suggest as I did in my first post and donwload the driver detective, it will tell you what is needed for you pc.



    I hope this helps

I am trying to run the "my amazing human body" cd-rom game. it says the sound software is not installed right or not working properly. we bought it new and worked once and now it wont. we have xp...


XP should be able to run it because they're backwards compatible with all Windows 98 software. Check your sound card in the Device Manager and verify the device and its' driver are installed. If not, re-install the driver for your sound card.

Is there a sound driver for windows xp pro as the downloaded driver from asus main website only says xp and wont work Asus Terminator Barebones A7vT Sound max


Usually, you get the drivers for XP, Vista, etc. The XP version should be fine enough for you. If you are not able to get your audio even after installing the driver, then the issue could be something else. If you are able to see the speaker ICON on your task-bar, then this means that the sound is enabled.

I put xp on my Emachine W3615 and nothing works now


See if you could get Ubuntu Linux. This operating system, should work out of the box. If you can get the CD, you could also try using it without actually installing it.

Installed windows xp disk with a scratch and now wont boot up


If you have the Windows Key/License for the XP disk you can use someone else's copy of the XP disk or call Microsoft and ask for a replacement. You need the license and it must not have been installed on another PC previously.

M-Audio FireWire 410 distorts and jams


Theres the reason I believe when you installed XP you have install the driver for that model:  XP fails to load the drivers possibly out of date and then it wont load it however you go here and find your one and install that you wont afterwards.
