Greetings,
I recently reinstalled Xp after formatting the hdd, since I was giving a friend in need this computer. Everything went smooth and I left the computer in her possession. A few weeks later I was visiting her and was using the computer when I noticed there was no sound, where there had previously been sound. Upon opening the sounds properties box I found a message stating that there was no audio device installed. I opened the device mgr and there was a yellow exclamation mark under "video controller" which was under "display." After doing some research, I came to the conclusion that the chipset driver needed updated or re-installed. I ran pc wizard which told me that the NB chipset was an Intel i915G, and the SB is a 82801FB/FR (ICH6/ICH6R) LPC Interface Bridge. I went to the Intel site to get current drivers, but could not locate an "i915" chipset driver anywhere. The closest I could come to it was a "915" express chipset driver which only caused a serious blue screen and error message say that windows had recovered from a serious problem and that if I had recently installed any new hardware that this may be the problem. If anyone can help it will be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Here are some general specs.
