  1. I recently reverted to Win2000 from Win XP due to a virus.
    Everything seems OK, but I cannot get the sound to work.
    No drivers came with the PC.

    In the Device Manager the driver for the Roland MPU-401 (I believe that is sound card) is installed but I get a yellow exclamation mark beside the "Audio Controller Device.
    I downloaded all sorts of drivers before stumbling in this web.

    What can I do? Would a new sound card work?
    Please help, I am exhausted

    Hi, thanks for your replies, it is very kind of you.

    Socrates, I have installed the program and ran a full system report. How can I send it to you?

    I have also done what green suggested, but no result.

    Awaiting your replies.

    Thank you

    here is my report

    Hello,

    sorry for not coming back to you earlier, spent a few weeks in a hospital, motorbike accident!

    Now my problem is the sound card again!

    I attach the everest report as you requested.
    Today I even tried to get a sound card from an old PC, but I was not able to locate it on the mother board, thought it would look like a SDRAM board, but obviously it does not.
    Anyways, report's attached. Any further suggestions?

    Thanks

    WoW!

    That sucks! I ride too, going down can mess things up!
    How are you doing now?

    Well got the report.
    You have onboard audio sis 7012, check this link
    www.sis.com
    Check the box, pick a download location, click the download button,
    these are recent audio drivers from sis.

    A sound card looks more like a video card than ram and uses a white
    pci slot, not a black/blue ram slot.
    If you want to install an audio card you'll need to disable the on board
    sound in the bios.


    I hope you feel better!
