    Hello,

    My friend's computer was really messed up last week, and the only way to fix it was to reinstall XP. Once I did so, the monitor and sound did not work right. After messing around, I got the monitor corrected (the computer could not find the drivers) but there still is no sound. The sound card is on the motherboard itself (not removable), but the computer does not see anything but a generic sound card.
    How can I fix this? Do I open the computer up and try to find the specs on the motherboard, or is there another way?
    Plus, I don't have access to the computer for a couple days, so I can't tell you what all the specs are.
    Thanks.

    Wait until you have the specs on it like Make and Model if store bought or if a build then the motherboard make and model.

    You will need to know the motherboard male and model as the sound card is intergrated on the motherboard (on-board) once you have this info you can then search for the drivers for this. I had to do the exactly the same thing on myu mates p.c, lookily he had the box to the motherboard.
