    It simply has never had a sound card installed for just web browsing. Or, the software
    is in need of being reinstalled and updated. If the system was sitting around for a long
    period of time, the drive itself becomes fragmented where things even Windows will not
    run at all. Defragging the hard drive would be the first step after visual confirmation of
    a sound card having been installed. A look at the back of the case will readily show if a
    card is there in a pci slot. If you only see and AGP card, it's time to buy some sound.
    Then again, how old is the board? It may have onboard sound already. It simply needs
    the driver set downloadable from the board's manufacturer.
