Clarification request: Tell about the hardware and version of XP
First off, make sure that copy of XP wasn't some hacked version. Next, check the make/model of your motherboard and go visit the manufacturer's web site to look for XP drivers. It's possible you're missing other ones as well. The most important driver will be the motherboard chipset as some other components rely on having that installed first. Download and install those drivers. I'd also collect drivers for any other on-board devices such as LAN, graphics, etc., but the MB manufacturer should have your audio drivers. If all else fails, you could go with an add in card but you still want to make sure the chipset drivers are in place before adding any other hardware. Good luck.
