    The thread title says it all. I have no sound when I dual boot into XP, I DO have sound when I dualboot into Ubuntu, and in XP i have beeps.
    DxDiag says:
    No sound card was found. If one is expected, you should install a sound driver provided by the hardware manufacturer.

    I have a Dell Dimension 3100, and i've gotten and ran their Sigma Tel crap, which didn't work, but crapped me into a good-for-nothing reboot!

    I have read the entire thread at

    since it mentions my errmassage 887800078, but it wasn't really solved, the guy just gave up. To be really clear, my problem differs from his since it's clearly not the hardware with me.

    Please, please help
