Hello,

I'm pretty much lost here. A while ago I reinstalled windows XP on my parents' PC. On my next visit they told me there is no sound. I checked to see through dxdiag that it does not detect any sound card. So I thought I perhaps forgot the sound drivers.

It has integrated audio chipset and I didn't know exactly which audio drivers to install. Tried a bunch, some didn't even install and others installed, but no sound still.

Then I uninstalled audio drivers and just tried to do a windows update. That redirected me to a bunch of sound drivers, tried the newest one - same, no sound still. And dxdiag still says that there is no sound card.

After a while I found the driver CD for the motherboard. Installed the sound drivers from there and STILL no sound.

So I'm pretty much stumped. Maybe the the hardware is failing? The motherboard is relatively new (about a year old). Any ideas? Much appreciated.

Just did. No luck. Dxdiag still says there is no sound card detected.


EDIT:

I have a hunch it has something to do with this:

It seems it doesn't even detect any sound devices, but see for yourself, attached a report.
