Hi bain russell,
I had this problem when I put XP on an aspire T180.
I don't know about your model, but I have realtek surround sound in mine.
The HD Audio driver is the one I installed WDM_R195.exe is the name of the file.
I also went to the Microsoft site and downloaded Windows Media Player 11
I found that some codecs were missing and found them via Google.
Get a free copy of BELARC and scan your PC, you will find the name of your
audio system there, if it can be seen.
Sorry I can't be any more help, but visit realtek and see what you can find.
