Sound doesnt work in XP sp2

Hi,
I installed XP sp2. I earlier had the same one and I used drivermax to store all the previously used drivers and imported them after re-installing XP.
But the problem is sound doesnt play. There is no volume icon on systray. I went to control panel -> sounds and audio devices. There in the "volume" tab, next to the speaker icon at the beginning it says " no audio device". And the two options below "device volume" and "speaker settings" are greyed out.
When I try to play it says: "Cannot play as theres a prob with ur sound device.There may not be a sound device installed, may be in use by another prog. or may not be functioning properly"
And the main thing is I have dual boot with Ubuntu and it works well.
Even before re-installing I had dual-boot and it worked ok.
Can someone please help me?
Thank you.

    Looks like your sound card drivers have not reinstalled for one reason or another.
    Try doing an update via windows update in the control panel, if that fails goto the Asus website and download the driver fro there, it's not a bad thing to have the latest driver any way.
    I hope this helps

Check the device manager, as there will be an "unknown" device listed without the driver, or the sound device will have an error. Getting the latest driver indeed does not harm, but you might simply need to reinstall the driver. I do not know drivermax, but some of these driver programs backup and restore only the driver files (.SYS, .INF and .DLL), without all the support programs.

If the driver does not fix it, you can check this Windows XP sound troubleshooting guide.

I have notebook Compaq 6715b with Windows XP (no SP2). Sound doesnt work. drivers from HP official site not working


Hello,

trust me, the fault is from the win xp SP2. I am saying this with confidence and out of experience. Except if the audio drivers you downloaded is for win vista.

While running the Win xp, some files make have skipped/not installed which is making the sound not to work. Or maybe you have initially installed a wrong audio driver.

To solve this problem. you have to re-run the win xp, if possible, use another xp Cd, maybe not Sp2.

After installation, let the audio driver be the fist thing you install.

Take care.

My pc is no sound,this is my cpu asus p4v8x-mx


though itz unclear to me of wat os u r using..
assuming that u r using win xp pro sp2..
howevr, download microsoft kb888111 update n install it..u need to re-install or update the device driver (may b manually)..logon to internet n seek the package/audio driver..along wid the company, there will b a list of such site n driver download links if u search by the model name on a search engine like google..
download them onto a location; if the driver is in a zip format, unzip it,if itz in .exe form, just run it; if done manually it'll ask for the correct driver and location; relocate the path and a .inf file (wat it'll ask for)....goto the device manager n verify, if installed properly..!!
also download n install k-lite mega codec pack....
but always better to consult ur system admin/vendor..!!

Why my audio driver failed to intall?


Try looking for a patch or updated driver for your sound system in your PC, integrated or a sound card that should be available at the manufacturers website(for mobo or integrated/external sound). After updating it should work, rather it has to because sp3 is better suited than SP2 and generally microsoft itself distributes the patches & updates. Alternatively you can visit driverguide.com, become a free member and let the Drive probe tell you which driver, including version, your PC will require to play audio/stero sounds........sodeep
