Just upgraded from Win XP Home to Xp Pro sp2 . Problem is no sound ! I dont see any sound card in the device manager. ( it worked fine with Xp home ) I click on the Volume COntrol & get the following error message "  There are no active mixer devices available. To install mixer devices, go to the Ctl Panel, Click Printers & other Hardware and then click other hardware, The program will now close. Whats up with that? It worked fine before I updated to XP pro

That is probably the case.

Anyway, it is always better to do a clean install to get rid of old stuff. If you still have the original XP home CD, and the XP Pro CD is an upgrade version, you can do a clean install, the installation process will just ask you to insert the home CD during the installation process.

Go to the MSI site and enter the mainboard model, then you should be able to download everything necessary.
