Windows XP pro
windows service pack 2
msi motherboard

after a losing battle with the latest malware that slipped right past avg. I ended up reformating my hard drive and starting all over.
I am pretty novice, but I work my way through things, and one of the issues caused by the malware was no volume

there are no active mixer devices to install mixer devices go to control panel.

I read the fixes on the net, and did RUN services.msc I changed the settings to automatic and start.
I downloaded the latest realtec drivers and reinstalled windows xp

when i go to Sounds and audio devices volume is grey'd out and
in audio the default sound playback device is listed as modem # 0 line playback with no way to adjust volume or advanced.

I read about an answer to this issue but the instructions are to vague for someone of my talents. It reads about windows inf and copying and putting it in other files ect.

All drivers are installed, everything should work, but there is no way to adjust the volume, all i get is an error messege. also there was mention about fmob in one error messege. Hours and hours with no fix, I would pull out my hair if i had any left, plz help
