    :mad:Windows XP pro has no sound device!!!
    A virus destroyed my hard drive so i had to do a total reformat/reinstall.
    when I did this, my sound & audio were wiped out and did not come back
    as part of the reinstall. all the device manager says is no audio device
    sound drivers are listed "unknown" :confused:


    :eek:

    After a format you have to install all the drivers again. Have you gone to the Realtek website: www.realtek.com.tw ?

    Also please do not post duplicate threads, I've deleted your other thread.
