XP SP2. Lost sound in my laptop. Do not have any motherboard CD. Is there any method to regain sound by downloading through internet?

Everest will ID the motherboard / soundchip and you can get drivers from the manufacturer site.

Open device manager, choose the relevant device and update the driver. Be sure to be connected to the internet at this time and let windows search the web.
