No sound on my Laptop

  Teddy Jeff 12:39 03 Jan 2010

I am unable to get any sound from my laptop. it is a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo A1650, Windows XP Home. I have tried re-installing EP O/S twice.
I have tried downloading new drivers and when I look in the Device Manager everything is ok except all the items in the Other Devices folder.
Mass Storage Controller
Multimeadia Audio Controller
Network Controller
PCI Modem
SM Bus Controller
and Video Controller
All have the yellow question mark and no drivers installed can anyone help please?

aswell as the drivers check you have codecs installed.

Thanks jamesd1981,
I have tried but was unable to locate the drivers. I have used Driver Magic which shows that the drivers have been downloaded and installed successfully but when I look in the Divice Manager the drivers ars not installed.

The codes seem OK

I tried to run a couple of programs i.e. Movie maker and Media player
and go the message "There maybe no sound device installed"
