I have read other peoples questions about having similar problems and have tried using the solutions but they were unsuccessful for me.
I have only one week on this so please reply fast, I have no idea what the problem is and I would rather fix it then have to look for a new sound card.
My Sound was working previously but I have installed a new operating system: Windows XP Home edition (Retail) and everything else has worked as far as I know but the sound does not.
I have installed the driver for the first time and nothing else, I am then show the message under the device properties:
This device cannot start. (Code 10)
My PC is an iQon bought from Tesco a long time ago.
Take a look at the attached file which is a jpeg picture of the device manager open and the properties as well showing what I see.
This is the Belarc Advisor Analysis of my PC - I will put most of it here...
