It usually means that you don't have exact driver installed. But sometimes it's a problem with a Plug&Play Enumerator. I solved this problem several times. First try to install exact driver for your device from cd or website of your motherboard. If after installation of a new driver you have the same issue you may try this:
1. Chek if PnP SW Enumerator is installed on your machine (Device Manager / System devices) - should be listed there!
2. If it is not there then we will probably solve it!
3. Locate "machine.inf" on your OS, copy it somewhere and modify it (find "ExcludeFromSelect=*" and remove the line or simply exclude it from processing by adding a ";" at the beginning)
4. Check the "machine.inf" file for location where SWENUM should be located (mine was reading: SWENUM.CoInstallers.CopyFiles = 11 ; %windir%\System32)
5. Find "swenum.sys" file on your XP installation CD (mine was in DRIVER.CAB) and copy it to the proper location (I am not sure if it is necessary but worked for me)
6. Go to Control Panel /Ad HW and follow the wizard towards manual selection of device to be added
7. Select Add System device
8. Select Have disk
9. Navigate to changed machine.inf
10. from the list select standard devices (in the left list) and "Plug and Play Software Enumerator" in the right list
11. Finish the installation
If it stil does not work reinstall the audio adapters' drivers. It should work now.
And also if you have any Linux liveCd you can boot from it . Linux loads it's sound drivers and after when you boot Windows it usually solves your sound problem ( I resolved this with Mandriva One Live CD).
Good luck!

Reinstall the card ensuring it is seated and connected properly.

Start the computer - if you are seeing an image, then the card is working. Go to the device manager and see what display adapter is showing. Right click on the display adapter and select 'Scan for Hardware Changes'. Update drivers.

You could have a ghost device in the system. Remove the card and start the computer in safe mode. Look at the device manager to see if there are any sound devices detected. If so, delete them. Now install the card and let Windows detect it. You probably left the card in the machine when reinstalling the O/S. You shouldn't have any peripheral devices hooked up when doing a reinstall of Windows XP.

You can try going into your sound driver and selecting properties. Try rolling back driver. If that doesn't work, go to device manager, select sound card, uninstall device, reboot computer and let windows reinstall the device. At that point windows should load its latest driver.

Our Computer had a virus, someone put another version of windows XP on and then we lost everything including our sound.


Many Packard-Bell systems use a Crystal sound card.
If you can get the number from the card (usually CSXXXX) you can pick the right driver from this site:

Go to very top to your your computer's name or my computer if you didn't name it. Right click and click on scan for hardware changes. Windows will find your device and reinstall in a second. This will give you cack your volume control and sound.
