http://www.viaarena.com/default.aspx?PageID=420&OSID=1&CatID=1010&SubCatID=104 hello, i get all my via drivers from the via arena.(for all that is made by via) i looked up your motherboard, and came up with this, via vt8233 is your chipset- audio-lan-video-chipset driver for that board.you should do all the drivers. first the 4 in one via driver is for the chipset, then the audio-video and any others that are onboard.even if they work-these drivers are newer than the one xp has built in the install cd. so, good luck! if you need further assistance-reply. you wil be ok.please rate this solution. thank you
ur motherboard has a disk containing the drivers needed for components like the vga card.. sound card (if integrated onto the motherboard), local area network (LAN) etc..to work.. this disk probably came along with ur computer.. unfortunately.. when you formatted th hard drive and reinstalled windows u got rid of all these drivers and they must be re-installed in order for these components to work..
if there is no disk present you can download drivers straight from the manufacturers website by typing in th make and model name of the sound card..or of the motherboard if p.c has a soundcard integrated onto the motherboard) into the address bar (the bar at the top normally..this begins with http://) you can find these details by going to start > all progs > system tools > system information > components > sound.. this will display the name and model etc of th card.. once on the manufacturers website there is usually a link for downloads to follow..
alternatively go to start > control panel > system > hardware > open "device manager" > once open look in the list for any yellow explanation marks anywhere..right click on any item showing this and delete..then restart the pc.. once it has restarted th pc will automatically detect new hardware and look for drivers.. often the best move now would be to rollback the drivers when given the option but this wont work after a disk format because th format clears th hard drive of everything..including updates and drivers so.. if you DO have a disk supplied with your pc carrying the required drivers (most new pc's will have this supplied with several other disks required to install software or applications...... this is far the easiest method of installing drivers
Usually Intel sound cards also works with Intel sound / audio driver. Try Realtek AC 97. Or download from the internet compatible sound card after entering your sound card model.
