You need to reinstall your sound driver. Do you have a soundcard or onboard sound? Either way you need to know the manufacturer so you can either do a search of your system files or download from the makers site.

When you reinstalled Windows XP, presumably you used a restore CD that came with the computer?

Did you also get another CD, labelled (something like) "Drivers and Utilities"?

If so, then your sound card driver will almost certainly be on this disk.

thats the annoying thing. I dont think I did.

In many cases the reinstall seems to disable the sound have you checked in BIOS that sound is enabled

Open Control Panel and then System (you might need to switch to Classic view). Click the Hardware tab, and then the Device Manager button. If there are any yellow question marks you need to download the drivers. Presumably you have Internet access as you've posted here, so download your missing drivers from the Asus website here: click here

Any further problems I'm happy to help.
