I seem not to get sound after changing my operating system to xpservicepack2

Hi there,

Service Pack 2 may have corrupted the drivers for your sound card. But before you do that, go to Start > Control Panel > Sound, and under the Playback tab, make sure the proper speakers are set as your Default Device in here. If they're not, right-click the proper device and set it as Default.

If you don't see your Speakers listed in there, then you need to reinstall the Drivers. I can only provide you with general information on how to do this since you didn't include the make and model of your sound card.

To reinstall your sound card driver, you need to know what type of sound card you're using. You can check this out by going to Start > Control Panel > Device Manager. Your sound card will be listed under Sound, Video, and Game Controller. If this is listed as Unknown, then you may need to open up the Laptop and look at the sound card directly. (If it's built onto the Motherboard, that won't help you.)

In the event that your sound card is built onto the Motherboard, or once you know the make of your Sound Card, go to your Laptop Manufacturer's website. I'll show you how to do this from the perspective of an HP Laptop, but if you have anything like a Sony VAIO, Toshiba, LG (Etc.), you will either need to visit the correct manufacturer`s website, or respond with the make and model of your Laptop.

From the perspective of an HP
- Go to and click on Support & Drivers. - Click on Download Drivers and Software (and Firmware). - Type in the name of your Product. If you aren`t sure, you go to Start > Right-Click on Computer > Go to Properties. Your make and model will be listed in there. - This might bring up a list of a ton of Notebooks related to your search. Once you find the right one it will ask you to select your operating system. You`ll want to select Windows XP, then hit Next. - Click on Driver - Audio and Download the latest driver for your sound card.
If this doesn`t work you may need to download the Driver from the manufacturer`s site directly (ie. Creative, Intel, Realtek, Etc.)
Again, do not download your Drivers using the example I have provided. If you download HP drivers for a Toshiba Laptop, you are likely to wreck your computer. I am just providing you with an example of how to update your Drivers since you didn`t provide the make and model of your own. :)

Ls500/2 sound driver

To get the driver for your laptop. I looked up LS5002 and only came up with a toshiba brand. If your laptop is a Toshiba then please go to this site to download the driver for your sound.

You will then click on Product Support.

A drop down area will now come up. You will then click "laptops" then "Satellite" and then where it says model type you will type in "L505-LS5002" this will open your downloads page for all of your drivers.

I hope this helps you. If not please let me know as much information on your laptop as possible so I can better help you.

Best of luck!
