Hello, yes-r:
From the serial number you listed, I found your computer on the Packard Bell website.
Here is the link to the driver that is listed for your computer.

Realtek ACL-655 AC'97 onboard audio solution, used with a SiS chipset.

Have you checked your Device Manager? When installing an OS, it should be the first thing that you do. Your computer should have come with drivers, but they aren't always included in the operating system. Sometimes there's a separate driver disk. But check the Device Manager first to see if there are any yellow exclamation points or question marks - that means a driver is not installed or is having a problem.

To do this, press your Windows key and your Pause/Break key at the same time. (Windows key is the one down between your ctrl and alt keys) Choose the Hardware tab and then the Device Manager button. Check through the list to make sure there aren't any obvious warnings.

See below:
Create Your Own Restore Points
Keep in mind system restore is unreliable and a poor substitute for a "real" system backup.
I can't help but wonder (and you should too) what else the xp reinstall has missed since you've already had to install both audio and video drivers. You might want to wait on creating the manual restore point until you're absolutely sure everything is functioning correctly. :thumbsup:

Glad your issues are being resolved....Further to what HitSquad said, we also have a tutorial on System Restore, please see BC's tutorial :
Windows XP System Restore Guide

Since you had posted a log to our HiJackThis forum before you did the XP Installation, you should also have a look at :
Simple and easy ways to keep your computer safe and secure on the Internet

Good-Luck!
JC
