Hi, just installed windows XP and there is no sound, the icon is missing, when i go to control panel and click sounds its all grey'd out as if there is no built in sound.

I went to device manager and took a screenshot:

you need the drivers for your motherboard.
go to the website for your motherboard and download and install them.

Just worth a try - in your original screenshot right-click on Multimedia Audio Controller and select Update Driver - see where that takes you. You might be lucky and find something within Windows that produces some sound. And the same for Video Controller.
