Make and model

by TheChas In reply to need help with Windows xp ...

To offer any help, we need to know the make and model of your sound card, or at least the sound processor IC on the card.

If the sound IC was made by Aureal, you need a new sound card. They went out of business before they got their W2K drivers to function, and the drivers from Microsoft for the Aureal chips leave a LOT to be desired.

If it is a Creative sound card, you need to determine if it is a retail or OEM card.

Creative offers VERY limited support for OEM cards.
For some Creative cards, you need a XP update file from Creative to get the card to function in XP.
