I just recently deleted and reinstalled Windows XP on my computer after a virus problem. Everything is back the way it was except i have no sound coming out of the monitor speakers. I reinstalled the audio drivers through the dell website, turned up all the volumes on soundmax and still cant get any sound.

What is the make and model of this computer?

Are there any errors showing in the Device Manager under Sound, video and game controllers?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

You might also want to check the settings (mute?) of the SoundMAX Audio Manager, which is generally installed alongside the driver. Look for the Audio Manager icon in your System Tray (near the date/time).

Secondly, head to the Control Panel, look for the Sound & Audio utility and make sure the Audio Output(Playback) points to SoundMAX.

1) Did you install the chipset driver?
2) Are there drivers for your display?

Go to the website of your computer (or motherboard) manufacturer and download and install the correct chipset driver for your system.

Whats the make/model of this system?

Check the speaker jack connection.
Make sure that the speakers are plugged into the lime green jack and that they are seated all the way.
Pull the speaker jack out & plug them back in. The speakers should pop.
In the beginning there was the command line.
