This forum helped my daughter to reinstall XP after a corrupt file was discovered following a Windows update. All is now working except there is no sound. Sounds and Audio devices in control Panel show none installed. A Belarc scan shows no Multimedia devices detected. The Mobo is VIA K8 N800 - she has tried downloading new drivers for that with no effect. Laptop is an 18mth old Evesham. Any advice would be welcome.
The only info she can find is 'Notebook Computer D4J - K8N800 VT8204B'. The driver scan shows red crosses against (and yellow question marks) PCI simple comms controller multimedia audio controller mass storage controller
but does not list details of what they are - assume some generic drivers may be needed?
