Default Probably a simple answer but I'm clueless

I recently had to reinstall windows xp on my aunt's computer. The installation process went fine, but afterwards, her audio wouldn't work. I've tried downloading the AC97 drivers but it might have screwed it up worse. I just couldn't figure out what to do.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

was this a fresh install of xp or was it an update?
if it was an update i dont think its a driver issue. if it was a fresh install then u should use the drivers that came with the motherboard.
hope this helps

Is it onboard audio or a separate sound card? In either case, you must install the drivers for that component. If it is motherboard, it iwll be on the website, or the cd if she still has it. If its a separate card, use the cd that came with it, or go to the site and download latest drivers.
