  1. I can't hear sound form my pc since I formatted it and installed Window XP. It complains the driver is not installed. I downloaded a driver from the VIA website but when I try to install, it complains of not passing the Windows logo test.

    Please I really need sound very badly.
    Thanks

    I have trouble with that damned C-Media driver every time I format - but it is a decent card, so it's almost worth the stress. I'm not sure which of the many things that i try that works, but if you get no sound or a constant buzz in the background, then you have the same thing i had. I kept reinstalling the driver and changing the input, environment, etc settings in the C-Media audio tool (installs with the driver) and eventually, without having to restart, it fixed itself. It has also corrupted itself over time for no reason - i think that may have been the reason for an earlier format of my pc.
