    The reformat erased everything on the hard drive including all drivers like the sound driver. After reinstalling Windows XP you have to reinstall all the drivers yourself. If you don't have a driver CD (that might have come with the PC), then you have to go to the PC manufacturer's website to get them. If you have a separate graphics card and/or sound card, you can go directly to the component manufacturer's website to download those drivers.
