Try this link from Microsoft:

Find out the model and manufacturer of your soundcard
and download the appropriate Driver for your Operating system
(XP, VISTA...etc.). A wrong or outdated Audio driver can cause
problems.

Sound is not comming when i change window XP from window vista


Your PC requires a more recent soundcard device driver that is compatible with Windows Vista.

You can download the required driver here-

http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/desktop/aspire_t180.html#driver


Please be aware that there is a different driver for Microsoft vista sp1 and above as opposed to Microsoft Vista. SP means service Pack which is a combination of updates supplied by Microsoft to make your operating system more reliable, secure etc.

If you do not know whether you have SP 1 installed, click on the start menu, right click on the computer and click on properties. Your Windows operating system is now described in the top of the window. It will say something like Microsoft Vista or Microsoft Vista SP1.

You can install windows XP, but you will need to find the drivers to your soundcard, dvd driver etc.. for it to work properly as new. After installing XP you can get them here at the Sony website. Install each driver and make sure it was configured properly.

Asus f3jc no sound after installing Windows XP


Hi, I solved this problem by downloading and installing a 5.10.0.5282 audio driver, which you can get here:
http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/SOUND-CARD/OTHER-SOUNDCARDS/MSI-VR330-Audio-Driver-51005282.shtml

Before running the installation, you must use your add/remove feature (in Control panel) to un-install the previous driver.
Hope this helps.

I can not activate my on board sound drive! there are no installation drivers on the pc as i wiped off windows vista and installed xp


You'll need to find out what soundcard or motherboard you have and download drivers from the manufacturers website.

You should find the manufacturers name and model number printed on the board.
