Re: I had installed windowes XP but there is no sound
I suspect a driver didn't 'load' properly. First, right click on 'My Computer', go down to 'properties' and left-click. When Properties screen appears, click on 'Hardware' tab, then 'Device Manager' and look down the list and you will most likely see an exclaimation point next to 'Sound, Video and Game Controllers'. Right click on the appropriate device and choose 'Update Driver'. Follow the default instructions and re-boot your PC. If there was no exclaimation point, it could be a speaker problem .

As you have mentioned that you have installed Windows XP on the system. I would like to tell you that after installing Windows XP, you have to install the drivers for the video and audio also.
Since you haven't mentioned the make of the laptop. So, I would request you to please let me know the make of the laptop so that I can provide you with the drivers for the same.
The only issue that why you are not getting sound is that we have to install the sound drivers in order to make the sound to work.
Installing your audio drivers on XP:- ***important
You have to install the "Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) Bus Driver for High Definition Audio (sp33867)" first, before intalling the audio drivers Conexant CX20549-12 Audio Driver for Microsoft Windows XP (sp41836.exe).
If you reverse the procedure your audio won't work.
Since your model audio is HD, you have to install the XP update first ie "Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) Bus Driver for High Definition Audio (sp33867)", before installing the device sound drivers "Conexant CX20549-12 Audio Driver for Microsoft Windows XP".

Make sure you back up any important files on that gateway machine before you install Windows XP Home because you may lose some during installation. You definitely will lose files if you chose to format the hard drive during your installation of XP which is recommended. After you backup, everything should be a breeze.
