Installed new sound drivers about 1 month ago and recently when i would start up my computer it says no audi drivers installed

Check that the audio device isn't disabled. Go to settings / control panel / system / hardware / device manager. Check for anything with a red cross, yellow exclamation, or question mark against it. Re-enable the audio device if disabled. If you have an exclamation or question mark against any of the devices, remove them and re-install.

* This is for XP. Procedures for other versions of windows will be similar.
