no sound after re installing xp home

Hi there, help needed please.

I re installed xp to have a fresh start (!!) and now have no sound. Except for a bleep occasionally when theres a message.

I used to have a site address which checks your system etc and tells you what you have but I cant remember what its called.

Is there something I have to install to get sound? or switch on?

and has anyone any idea why, when I leave the pc for a while it takes what seems to be ages for the screen to fade back on?

It didnt do that before! lol so much for having a clean start, its taken me all week to get it to behave!

Many thanks

Have you loaded the motherboard drivers, if you have an onboard soundcard the drivers will be on the disk, failing that do as zarobian has suggested.
