    Sound card is not working anymore on my Sony Vaio VGC-RA 820 G PC Desktop. I took it in for repair and the technician tried to install a separate new Sound card, which did not work either. He said that the OP system did not accept it. We tried everything, still no sound. Can some one help? Is there maybe a certain brand of sound card I could have installed that my computer accepts?

If these steps don't work you may need to replace it. I have heard and experienced that sound cards can go out fast. They aren't real expensive depending on what you use sound on your computer for. just basic use they should be any where from 10.00 t 30.00 depending on what brand.

No display but OS is booting & running as evident from sound.No display in external monitor also

Does the power on light show on either the OS monitor or the external monitor? If so, and no picture, it is likely to be the graphics card has failed. If in warranty return.

I downloaded the os from vista to xp my sound card doesn't work proper why? but it works with vista very well

The Vista audio driver is not compatible with XP, you need to download the XP audio driver.
Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEB site - support/download page and download the latest Windows XP device drivers for your model computer, Use this link :-
You can download the various drivers and then you click on and run the various driver files, they will then unzip and expand into a folder on C:\drivers Then install the various drivers from this folder.
