I finally setup Windows XP Media Edition OEM. It is like Media Edition and XP Professional combined. I've set some hard stuff up and all. But I am not getting sound. In the sound options in control panel, I cannot select anything. It's not detecting my speakers. It's not working with headphones. Nothing. Where can I get a sound device or driver or something? I've looked with no luck. When I try to open a .mp3 file on Media Player it says "There is something wrong with your sound device or it is being used by another program" or something similar to that. So can somebody tell me what to do make it work. I'm still trying to get the computer stable on Windows.

first right click my computer and hit properties, click the hardware tab, then device manager anything with a ? next to it is a device without a driver installed for it (there probably should be for your soundcard) if your soundcard name on that screen isnt very specific (sometimes it just gives general names) go to filehippo.com and download a program called everest next use said program to figure out what sound card you are using now go to that companies website and download your drivers that should be it

Hmm... I used "dxdiag" in my console, and it said that no soundcard was detected. What's up with that?

Your sound card is not detected because you don't have a driver installed or is not the right driver installed, go to your sound card producer driver and download the latest driver released
