Angry No sound

Hi people, I'll get right into my delema. I just had xp reinstalled on my
pc, everything was just fine untill I tried to install a program I used with a video capture device, when a warning window came up and said
it was not compatible with xp do you want to continue anyway? because I had it on my pc before I said yes. BIG MISTAKE, my pc shutdown and when all was said and done I had those yellow warning
flags beside my dvd & cd drives in device manager and on something that I don't remember what in the system device section. Following all instructions in the help section I uninstslled the drivers, my sytem redetected them and re intsalled my cd & dvd but the one in system devices was not detected and therefore not installed. Needless to say I still have no sound, when i try to play a sound file a window opens and says no sound device installed, so I went and bought a new sound card to hopfully replace the original one, device manager says it,s working properly but still no sound I tried to set it as mydefault device but there was nothing in that section to set it said there is no audio device.
Hope you can help!

Are you sure you even have the drivers for that sound card? If so, try to reinstall them. Maybe the sound card that you bought doesn't work. We never know...

check your audio mixer settings. I have "fixed" many computers with that problem. Ended up that the wave section was muted.

it sounds stupid and maybe you have checked it, bujt its just troubleshooting.
I have a computer with stuff in it.

Ok I tried it now, I get a window pop up that tells me "There are no mixer devices available to install mixer device go to control panel, click printers and other hardware then click add hardware." I tried that but I don't have anything in control panel that says printers and other hardware, I have one that says printers and faxes but that does not have anything tha says add hardware, so I tried add new hardware
but it doesn't detect anything. is there another way of installing this mixer? Could not having a mixer installed be the cause?
