I recently re-installed windows xp on my computer but seem to have lost the sound.. When I go to control panel and then sounds and devices and click on audio teh sound playback says no playback devices and is greyed out when previously it had Modem #0 Line Playback I think
Also before I had sound max but when this I try to install this it says no driver?
Download SIW from here click here install/run - under the heading (left hand side) "hardware" select "motherboard" which will give you the info required - ie.Exact model of your motherboard - post back here for help.
Open Device Manager > right-click on the problem audio entry > Update Driver... > select 'Not this time' in the Hardware Update Wizard > Next > select 'Install from.....(Advanced) > Next > Browse to where to downloaded & unzipped the 2nd file's SMAXWDM\W2K_XP folder > OK.
If there's more than one problem audio entry in DM, repeat the above process.
If that doesn't work, do the same as above, but this time browse to the 1st file's unzipped SMAXWDM\W2K_XP folder & click on OK. G
