I downgraded from vista to xp and now i need a sound driver compatible for my gateway:w34oui


This is another tough one.
Since GW does not have Win XP drivers available for your system, it will be difficult to find a sound driver that will work. You could try to use the Vista driver, but I would be skeptical that it will work to use that driver because of the way that sounds are processed in Vista/Win 7.
You didn't mention why you did the downgrade, but if it was performance related, Win 7 should work fine with your system. If there was a certain program etc., that you need, there is another option.
There are many USB soundcards that will will work well with Win XP, and they should not have the XP problem since their hardware is designed to work with XP. Note: If you go this route, make sure you choose one that is Win XP compatible. One other thing on this option, though. Your internal speakers may not route sound through the USB soundcard, which would mean then that you would need external speakers to get sound. I understand that may be a deal-breaker, which is why I would (unless you specifically need XP) either go back to Vista or upgrade to Win 7. Some version of Win 7 feature "XP mode" which allows you to run programs in a virtual Win XP environment. I have not had perfect luck getting XP programs to work, but it's worth a try.

No soundcard found on reinstalling xp i have no recovery disk


Did you have a look in the Device Manager? Is there any unknown device or Other device listed?
Possibly you need special drivers for your sound card if XP does not support the sound card directly.

Other XP sound troubleshooting steps can help as well.

Installing a sound card on my pc


Are you certain you have no audio device in the PC? Have you checked the Bios to see if onboard sound is available?

In case there is a device, but it is not working, maybe this can help:
