    Hi Geoffrey,

    I find it very hard to believe that a modern PC capable of running XP (ok its been around a while but still) does not have a sound card. I would suggest that your motherboard has an intergrated soundboard attached if nothing else. Take a quick look at all the connectors on your machine. You may find that there are 2 small circular connectors. One for the headphones / speakers and the other for a mic. You will probably find that they are Green (for headphones) and pink (for Mic). Take a look at this and if possible give me the Make / model number of your PC. You may just need to reinstall the drivers.

    Regards,

    Andy

Go to your Start menu, click on all Programs, Select Accessories, then System Tools, then click on System Information. A window will open titled 'System Information'. In the System Summary section, make a note of the System Manufacturer and the model number and report it back to us, along with the processor and the total physical memory.
Now open the Components menu by clicking on the plus sign next to the word, and select the Sound Device window by clicking on the words "Sound Device" Report back what appears in the window at the right when you do this, and we'll take it from there.

    There must be some kind of sound card installed in your system...I can't believe there wouldn't be one.
    Use your device manager to determine what sound devices are installed in your system, by clicking here. Try to work through the steps in this article to troubleshoot your sound installation. If you need to get drivers for your sound card, follow these instructions.

    I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
    If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

I downloaded black opps went to play and it wont respond


OS not likely the problem. Black Opps is OK on XP Home. Check minimum system requirements. I'd suspect RAM or video card.

Bought Windows XP Home Ed. and tried to install it, but after regstering it, couldn't get the video or sound to work. Put the program on a 500 gb hard drive, and formated it too. What was wrong? Got it...


Is your video-adapter "integrated" onto the motherboard?
Is your sound-adapter "integrated" onto the motherboard?
If so, access the web-site of the manufacturer of the motherboard, and download the video & audio device-drivers for Windows XP.

If not, then you have "add-in" audio/video cards.
Access the web-site(s) for the manufacturer of those cards, and download the device-drivers.

Or, access http://WindowsUpdate.Microsoft.com
click "custom" and click "optional hardware" updates,
to see if Windows Update will offer the device-drivers.
