Hi, i'm new here, and am having some driver issues. I recently got a new hard drive, and freshly installed windows xp onto it. However, i can't get the sound to work (through headphones, or speakers) , and after performing a test in my dxdiag, it says that i have no direct3d support either. Here are my specs, which are also listed in my profile:

Windows XP Professional (5.1, Build 2600) Service Pack 2 (2600.xpsp.050329-1536)
English (Regional Setting: English)
Dell Inc.
system model: Dell DXP051
BIOS: Phoenix ROM BIOS PLUS Version 1.10 A05
Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) D CPU 2.80GHz (2 CPUs)
Memory: 1022MB RAM
Page File: 336MB used, 2122MB available
Windows Dir: C:\WINDOWS
DirectX 9.0c (4.09.0000.0904)
DX Setup Parameters: Not found
DxDiag Version: 5.03.2600.2180 32bit Unicode

In device manager these drivers are listed as missing:
-PCI Device
-SM Bus Controller
-Video Controller
-Video Controller (VGA Compatible)

I have two CD's which are labled "DRIVERS AND USER DOCUMENTATION" and "DRIVERS AND UTILITIES" but in the first all i could find was info about my monitor, in SEVERAL lanuages, and in the latter, i managed to hook up my printer, but i didn't find anything else. I have looked up these drivers and they seem to be related to the sound and video failures but i don't know where to begin. I'm some-what new to this, and i would really appreciate the help. Thankyou.

You need to install the sound card drivers. Go to the Dell website, enter your service tag, and you'll find the correct driver.
