Reinstallations of XP sometimes do not install all of the sound files needed. Do a google search for UAA, it is Microsoft's audio file. Download it, install it and then run Windows update. The drivers for your machine should be under the Hardware section of the updates.
Please make sure to follow the steps to the audio drivers exactly as you need to make sure you have the Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture Bus Driver for High Def Audio installed before you install the other audio driver.
I've read that this is time consuming but it works..good luck!

This usually occurs because of corrupted drivers .. you should completely uninstall the sound
card driver, reboot and let windows detect the card and if it's not
plug n play ... install the driver manually, not automatically.
