press f10 key to save the chnages in BIOS or use the save and exit option in BIOS menu to safe the changes
insert the WinCD(ensure it's a Windows install CD)
recovery or resuce CD of Win will NOT work.
if u need a goor Windows Install CD of XP,Vista, 2000
do a google search look for
"Torrent Piratebay WindowsXP SP3"
"Torrent Piratebay Windows Vista"
in the result list look for the above phrase of
download the Torrent link file(small 100kb file)
google and search BitTorrent
Download BitTorrent software and install it
use BitTorrent to open the 100kb torrent link file for the Windows OS that u got before
it will download an ISO file of say 400 to 700 mb depending upon which WinOS u download
burn that IOS image file to a CD using Nero or any ISO burner
use the CD to boot and install Windows
all the best

if your computer came with a disk the sound drivers could be on it
control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select appropriate speakers or audio you will find 3 drop down lists make the necessary adjustments there or control
panel,administrive tools,computer management,device manager,sound video and game controllers could be a yellow question mark? right click to re-install drivers
hope this helps
