    All you need to do with that is get the drivers for the system off online. Drivers are what makes the sound system work on the operating system.

My system is not playing any sound what is problem & how to install sound software after reinstalling windows xp


Following your clean install of Windows XP you will need to reinstall the sound driver for your PC. This driver is listed under the original driver's header in the following link.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?os=228&lc=en&cc=uk&dlc=en&sw_lang=&product=1829063#N2980

If you are missing any other drivers you should also download them from this link. You can tell which drivers you are missing by right clicking on my computer - click on properties - then select device manager. Any system devices listed with a yellow exclamation mark (!) Are missing a fully functioning device driver.

Thanks,
Javaftper

When i reinstall my window it seem that the sound went missing


You can try going to IBM's site and downloading multiple sound card drivers for other models within 2 years of yours. They miss and match devices alot like Dell and HP does. Extract the drivers in seperate folders on your desktop and point the browse to one folder at a time until you kind the correct driver. I believe IBM will take your call free for issues like these even out of warrenty period.

IBM THINKPAD T43. I can find the switch for my ibm thinkpad T43


Are you sure you have a wire card installed? If so, then try this:
  1. Right-click the My Computer icon and select Properties.
  2. Click the Hardware tab and press the Device Manager button. The network card should appear under Network Adapters.
    Note: If the card has a exclamation mark over a yellow background, then this is an indication that the card is experiencing a problem. Go to Driver download step 5.
  1. Verify that the radio is enabled.
    It is possible to disable the transmitter of the wireless card without Device Manager showing any problems.
    Note: Follow the instructions provided to enable wireless card.
    • Most wireless cards will put an icon in the system tray (the line of icons in the lower right corner of your screen). Right click this icon and it may have a menu option to enable/turn on the wireless radio.
    • Some systems come with a Wireless Radio switch to disable the wireless radios. The wireless radio switch is usually located on the front side of the machine. If you are having difficulties with wireless connections, make sure the Wireless Radio switch is set in the On position.

  2. Check for association to an Access Point.
    If you double-click the previously mentioned system tray icon, the configuration utility of the wireless card will appear. This utility will be able to show the status of the wireless card, showing what channel the card is using and what signal strength is being received. It may be difficult to maintain a connection if signal strength is low due to either interference or distance. For example, interference can be caused by 2.4GHz cordless phones, other Access Points in the area, and physical structures such as load bearing walls or metal partitions.
    Note:
    The utility can be used to configure the wireless card settings, but if using Windows XP Zero Configuration or Access Connections, you will need to use those programs to actually configure the wireless card as they will overwrite the setting of the utility.

No Sound on my IBM t43 Thinkpad


all hardware requires a driver
driver is an information file that tells the operating system how device works
without the driver the device cant work

when you reformatted you must not have installed sound drivers

here is a link to Windows XP version of the sound drivers of your laptop

http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/license.do?filename=mobiles/1ya210ww.exe

download it
install it
reboot

and you will have sound

if you have a different operating system than windows XP, tell me and i will give you link for that
