I have a compaq dx1000 microtower machine. After changing the operating system to windows server 2003, ethernet controller, pci bus, sm bus and sounds are not working. Can somebody please assist me.

It appears that compaq doesnt support that version of windows for that machine.

That doesnt mean you can't get it working though. for that os, i suggest either trying xp vista or windows 7 drivers. 

i would try xp drivers first, because they are the closest generation of drivers to windows server 2003.

you can get the drivers for your computer here:

I hope this works for you. Microsoft did report the there are very few windows server 2003 drivers available.

The problem is when i playin games i only hearin the talk an i not hearing the effects of the game an when i install my adobe flash media encoder i only hearin the mic on the web site but the sound

First, try updating your audio drivers. Next update directx to the most recent version. If you still have no audio in game try checking out the sound settings in the game itself.
Let me know how that goes, and if it doesn't work let me know what type of sound card you have, which game you're having the problem with, and the operating system that you run. (Windows XP, Vista, Linux etc.)

Sound card works for audio but no sound for XP sound files

Have you checked the colume control? maybe you hace something muted on the volume control. Otherwise, I should say go to eventviewer and let me know if you see any errors. Also running windows updates can also work for you or fix your problem...
