No sound or network card following XP reinstall

  1. Hi. Just reinstalled XP but now do not have any sound. Having run Belarc Advisor, being told that the pc has a Unimodem Half-Duplex Audio Device.

    It is a seven year old Dell which apart from the recent troubles has been fine.

    I assumed I needed new drivers, but is this really it or is it something else? Most of my other hardware items have just reinstalled themselves ont heir own.

    Also, network card now missing - Belarc says there are no network drives detected - wierd as I have an ethernet cable plugged in the back which prevously ran a perfectly fine home network.

    Been on the Dell website to try and dl the driver for the network card but it is unclear which one is on my system and hence I propbably haven't reinstalled the right driver for that yet.

    Any ideas guys?

    look in side at your network card for a make and model#.And go to dell to see if its got the drivers..Or go to DRIVERMAXX
