Xp sound driver


did you reinstall your XP operating system recently? Or did it work before? You can take a look into the device manager ( "Windows" + "R" key and in the command line type the "devmgmt.msc") if there is any driver problem.
If yes, try reinstalling the driver. You can find it for example here:
If you want to find yout if your Sound is working at all and your hardware is ok, then download an Linux live cd, burn the iso on a blank disc an boot it. If you can hear any sounds at start, then it is most probably your Windows settings.
