    I didnt add a new card, I updated XP Pro and rebooted then a window pops up, says "looking for software for your new hardware, Multi Media Device". I went to control panel, sound and audio devices, it says there is no audio device installed. Went to control panel, system, device manager, there is a yellow triangle with a question mark, it says multi media controller. Whats all this about?

Windows doesn't recognize my sound card and I can't locate a driver, for it. I don't think the sound card is bad, as it worked before I reformatted my harddrive and added the software.


Install the latest Sound driver from the website.

link: support.dell.com
Click on "Drivers & Downloads",
Enter your "Service Tag",
Locate the right driver, download it.. & Install it.

Hope it works....

Can't install windows XP on a new 500GB Hard Disk


go to the manufacturers website and see what bios updates there are ? If any relate to recognizing hard drive capacity then it will be worth while installing the update onto the motherboard.

If not then check your motherboard for enabling LBA and if you read the manual it should explain what each option is for.

Also might be worth while slip streaming your xp installation disc with the sata drivers for your motherboard ( the sata drivers you can get from your motherboard manufacturers website, download and extract them and then use nlite to combine the sata drivers with the xp disc and re burn the xp disc ensuring to make it bootable )

Nlite website

Seeing as you are combining drivers it may be worth while getting all the other drivers ie network card, graphics, audio etc and combing that with your bootable xp disc.

Sound Blaster Audigy Prob


Dear


This usually happens to a PC with an Audigy card and uses a VIA chipset. The problem seems to be worse with the use of VIA Althlon chipsets but I can not concretely confirm that. Usually this will surface during driver installation with a message saying that there is no Audigy card installed. The solution that I found to work is to first manually install the card through device manager. In Control Panel->Systems->device manager, do a driver update by specifying the directory where you have extracted the Audigy drivers. This driver update will end up with a partially working driver that says "Audigy Audio Processor (WDM)" or "EMU10k1 audio". Once this is performed reinstall the driver normally by running setup.exe. If you can get the driver to partially install then the second time around the system will be able to recognize the installed audigy card. 
In 2003, Creative finally releaased updated drivers for SB Live! and Audigy. The new drivers should solve the above problem for most people.

No Sound Device


Check your BIOS settings in the setup and make sure that the sound card isn't disabled.

If it is enabled and you are not getting any sound, you may have to get a PCI audio card to replace the mobo audio.

Cannot find media device driver


Your Notebook is installed with High Definition audio card which XP cannot recognize by default. Installing Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) will allow XP to recognize High Definition audio cards.

Download the Microsoft UAA drivers for Windows XP form the link:

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp33501-34000/sp33867.exe

Restart the Notebook after the UAA Drivers are installed.

Now, download Conexant High Definition Audio Drivers for your Notebook for XP :

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp34001-34500/sp34386.exe

You should be able to install the Audio Drivers without any issues.
