Just used a new copy of XP Home to reinstall XP on this machine, and all has gone well except for the sound. This machine has Sigmatel onboard audio but device manager says no drivers are installed for MultiMedia Audio Controller, and control panel Sounds says nothing is installed. Tried uninstalling and rebooting but nada. The serial # of this PC is 2667077049.

Can find nothing at all regarding this model on the Packard Bell site. Have found this and wondering if it is worth a try -

Hi rowal5555 :thumbsup:

This machine has Sigmatel onboard audio

If you're sure about that, then you might want to look at these two instead.
One is for a via chipset, the other for an SiS chipset.
This is one of those circumstances were you might be better off running a HW utility like everest or sandra for further ID.
I'll leave the two links anyways.

Packard Bell has 2 listed for Sigma Tel. One for a VIA chip and the other for a SIS. One of those 2 are worth a try

Thank you Guys.

SiS vaguely rings a bell thru the haze of HalfHeimers from the days when this was my PC. I have asked the present owner to keep an eye on this topic, so hopefully he will have good news when he comes over for coffee tonight.

Cheers

The SiS one did the trick, thank you.

Can't understand why a driver was not on the XP disk though!!
