can we get a bit more description? you installed xp pro, and then upgraded the service packs, and never had sound. and the beeping? what kind of beeping is it, and what kind of computer are we talking about? your sounds likely a driver issue, but the beeping could indicate a overheat.

Recently reformmated my computer due to various problems. Everything runs smoothly now but I have NO sound. Everytime I open windows media player and try to play something I get: Windows Media Player cannot play the file because there is a problem with your sound device. There may not be a sound device installed on your computer, it may be in use by another program, or it may not be functioning properly.
I don't know what happend. When I go into control panel and click sounds and audio devices I can not change any of the settings because the colors are like grayish disabled color.
Everytime I have a message box, it beeps.
I don't see what's wrong because I had sound before so I don't know what could have happend.

You may want to try the Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture High Definition Audio Class Driver update for Windows XP sp3.

It is available here.

I got it working by installing Realtek in the end.
First I download a loads of them like .exe, .zip, 32bit, 64bit, avsu, realtek, soundmax.
I just install them once at the time, restart my PC.
In the last realtek I install, it comes a box ask me to install anyway or stop installation, then while was automatic restart I head sound...

when you have hard ware e.g. sound card
one driver is made for it
e.g creative sound blaster 5.1 has the driver sound blaster 5.1
but what you done is got random drivers from random place and for random sound cards e.g. sound max and realtek


so its really liky that you found a driver similar to your sound card and thats why its working but will show problems later on (games) and various windows bsod and so on
