Yes you have to install the drivers for your sound card.....this always happens when you install XP it fails to read what drivers are in your sound card which is on board. Do you have the original drivers do you know the sound card onboard?

try this, uninstall the drivers first. take out the sound card. then reinstall the drivers without the sound card attached, once the drivers are installed, power down the computer the re-attach the sound card then start the computer back up. ive seen a few devices that are like that so maybe that will work.

Computer cant detect device

Try going to add hardware. Then select yes, the hardware is installed. When it gives you the list of installed devices, go to the bottom and select add new hardware device. After that select the advanced option to select "install the hardware I manually select from a list". On the next page, select network adapters. Then click "have disk" you will now have to put your driver in a folder(usually on the desktop). After you select have disk you will browse for the folder which has the driver. Make sure your driver has a file that has the extension ".inf" as this is needed to install the driver.
Hope this helps

Speakers stopped working

Try to reload your drivers for your sound card.
Make sure there are no conflicts with any new software and or hardware that you recently installed.
If you are using XP try to restore your computer to a date when your sound was working.

Hope this helps.
Good luck.

Soundcard in XP

Try manually installing it by using the Add New Hardware wizard. Make sure all other soundcard(s) are deleted from Device Manager first, though. Another thing you can try- Boot into Safe Mode, open Device Manager, remove/delete any and all instances of sound card hardware you find, reboot and see if Windows re-detects.
