Urgent help needed - no sound

After installing xp I noticed I had no sound. I went to the 'Device Manager' - there was an error with the Multimedia Audio Controller.

It says: This device is not configured correctly. (Code 1)

To reinstall the drivers for this device, click Reinstall Driver

I've tried that but with no success. There isn't a driver there. What do I do?

I suggest you go to the makers website for the soundcard and get the latest drivers. Not being funny but if it says "no drivers" just grab some. If the card has no xp drivers on their website - try the win2k ones

How do I find out the exact make of my soundcard? I bought it in a bundle you see.

Check in device manager and see if it lists any information at all. If not, you'll need to pull the card and start doing a search with whatever information you can glean from it (been there).

When I'm in that position, i'll type whatever identifiers i find into the search engine, sometimes you get lucky that way. I've also had to go as far as searching for FCC databases. It's a pain. You say you got it in a bundle - no documentation or disks came with it?

You might have to look inside the case to figure it out.

Is it an integrated card, or PCI card?

If its Integrated, what Motherboard do you have?

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
