No sound on XP

No sound on XP.
I have a Gateway laptop MX6447, with XP (Media Center Edition).  I do not have the original install disk and Gateway has no record of this model. After some work was done on the machine , there was no sound. When I try to download drivers , they can’t be found on the net.  I copied audio codecs from  another disk but they failed to work.  Would it help to install Another copy of XP?  If the drivers aren’t included with the install, maybe they could be found on the net?  Or, do I need to know the specs of the sound card in the computer, in order to get the right drivers?  See attached pics.
