I'm running xp home and i have no sound at all. The motherboard is intel D845GVSR with realtek ac97 onboard audio.
I've installed, uninstalled, and reinstalled the latest drivers and and still no luck. Device manager says the device is working properly and it is enabled in the bios. This is an emachines desktop pc, mobo and processor fried so i replaced them with the intel board. I didn't do a clean intsall because the the new board has the same chipset as the old one and i figured it should work out ok. The pc boots with no problem, however there's no sound at all.
