    Hardware drivers?

    I installed my XP as a second O/S alongside my Windows 7. But the XP isn't seeing the audio hardware, so there is no sound. XP runs, but silently. The Win-7 install sound is fine.

    Is there a way to fix this short of reinstalling from scratch? I'm not wanting to do that since I did it all in order this time, and ended up here, so what's to stop it from just happening again?

    Hi Chuck,

    Manually tracking down and installing the correct drivers from a safe source is a good trick to learn, there's a walkthrough here: - ignore the upper section for now (driver software can get it wrong, Windows Update/Device Manager update drivers are rarely the latest or full-featured) and start from ~ fig.3 - 4.
