My system was getting all clogged up and rather slow, so after some thought i decided to go ahead and re-format it, deleting my 2 partions and then reinstalling windows onto 2 fresh partions....

Everything seemed to go ok, except now im left with no sound and boy have i been trying to get it working again, obviously to no avail being here!

Hope there is someone out there with some help for me because id love to get this sorted out.

Thank you!!

Hiya Hamluis, i downloaded and installed the Realtek high definition audio drivers for XP and the nvidia geforce drivers for xp.....unfortunately i still have no sound.

Should i download and update the boston bios update? only it says it could be dangerous to do if its the wrong thing so i wasnt sure whether to go through with it or not.

cheers

My take on updating the BIOS...I've never had to do it for any system functionality.

Updating a BIOS is only useful when it's known that doing so will add something to system capability...that has previously been missing, IMO.

I don't think sound functionality qualifies as such...when the system sound has worked previously as it should.
