When starting the computer, you need to enter the boot menu or set the machine to boot from the CD drive before the hard drive in the bios or utilities set up. Once you've done this, be sure the disc is in the drive upon start up. Then follow the directions.Keep in mind that the XP disc may not have all of the drivers or your machine, so you will have to go to Everex's support site and download them. You can see which drivers you may need in the device manager. Also, when updating XP, only install service pack 2, do not install three, it has issues and is really not needed.
First check that your sound isn't muted or turned down way low in windows. Do this by clicking on the start button, then clicking RUN and typing 'mmsys.cpl' without the quotes to bring up your sound & audio properties. If there is a check next to mute click the check to remove it. Next click on the Audio tab along the top. Now under sound playback click the volume button to bring up the Volume control. Again make sure nothing is muted. Now the left slider is your main volume control so if thats really low pull the slider up a bit. I would put everything up on high and adjust down from there. If theres still no sound then the next step would be to reinstall the sound drivers. You didn't post your exact model but you can find the drivers yourself on here http://www.everex.com/support/support.htm If you have any more questions just post and i'll get back to you.
