No Sound ????

  buster99 15:14 16 Jan 2008

My laptop (Compaq Pressario) used to have Windows media centre O/S installed. Due to a different problem I needed to install Windows XP Pro. This has solved the original problem with regards a wireless adapter but I no longer have any sound !!!!!. I'm unable to see in the device manager if there is a sound card. I'm not familiar with the internal workings of laptops. The computer still makes the critical error beep which I guess comes from the motherboard. There is no longer any voloume symbol in the bottom right next to the clock either. Any ideas greatly appreciated.

Check to see if the onboard sound is enabled in the bios first?

Just an idea
Have you checked the sounds tab in start/control pannel to make sure the volume is up and not muted?
