  1. Today I formatted my hard drive to install Windows XP. Everything went fine and I even got my graphics card working. I can not get my sound working.

    I do not have a sound card so I am not sure what drivers I need to get it working. I tried using Windows Update but It says "This device cannot start (Code 10)".

    Any help would be appreciated thank you.

    According to the ECS website, you will need an IDT audio driver.
    Have you tried downloading that and running it?
