    in device manager it says that I already have legacy audio drivers and that they are updated and working properly. My speaker is plugged in and turns on, but there still is no sound.

    In the control panel/sounds and audio devices - it says no audio device. I double checked and my soud bar is hooked up properly.

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 might find it difficult to get hold of windows XP keys since Microsoft stopped selling it.
If you get on google and search for something called TinyXP (rev09). I think that this willl solve your problem.
