I have recently installed new hard disk and now i am now getting a p message that sound device not installed. i do not have any other disk except operating system (XP) disk. pls help me to solve this problem?
First what you need to know what brand of sound card is ..,
This you will be able to know from Control panel -> sounds and Audio devices option
once u know the Type, U can down load it from net or
the very easiest is to take any Mother Board CD from some of ur collegues and run the
setup.exe from [sound] Folder in the CD
I think the soundcard present on ur mother board is not Avance AC'97, Xp comes with default drivers of Avance AC'97 Drivers.

You need the Microsoft UAA drivers for your operating system download them uninstall any sound drivers through device manager right click driver and uninstall then install M/soft UAA drivers reboot when restarted go to device manager, right click sound driver and choose update driver will go on net and find and install them
What is your motherboard type and model? If you purchased your computer a brand new unit,a CD installerforit device drivers shouldcome with it. If you have that Device driver installer CD,try installing from the CD device installer that came with your new PC.
you have to download the sound drivers and install the software..can't give you the exact driver as haven't specified much about your PC. still try to download one of the common driver like realtek- Ac97... from the following URL .. http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=14&PFid=23&Level=4&Conn=3&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false
or try to download other audio drivers and install it...your problem would be fixed.
