Is this an onboard sound chip or one you physically installed?

Also, the make and model of the motherboard would help.

You probably need to install drivers for the sound chip. For this you will need the make and model of the motherboard. Then you can visit the manufacturer's website and download the drivers, or post the info here and someone will point you in the right direction.

It will most likely be a C-Media or Realtek onboard sound chipset unless you have installed a sound card.

Check in the Bios that onboard sound is enabled and install or download the latest audio drivers for the motherboard. They should, in fact, be on the mobo CD.

the pc was given to me and i dont know whats in it is there any softwqare that will tell me

Open the case and see if there is a manufacturer written anywhere on the mobo.

Belarc click here will identify your motherbord and everyting else in your PC.
Once we know the sound chip we can point you to the drivers.

I'm confused?

At first you said "i recently purchased a new hard drive and mother board and i have installed everything but he sound" Then later you say, "the pc was given to me and i dont know whats in it"

If the Motherboard was a recently bought new unit, it should have an install CD in the box.
