    I crashed my HDD yesterday after one of you ;) told me it was a HDD issue.....
    I re-installed XP and the sound driver, USB and SM Bus controller have not found their drivers form Device mger.
    The sound is on board and I have enabled this in the BIOS. but still I can't have sound at all.
    What is going on???
    Thanks, Fred.

    You need to locate the drivers for your on-board chipset.

    They should have come with the PC, and may be labled motherboard drivers, or motherboard utilities or such.

    They are only useful if they are designed for XP of course.

    Failing that, identify the make and model of the notherboard and search for the makers website using Google.

    They are usually available to download, in a suitable form for most operating system versions.
