Hi did you do a fresh install of the OS? if so in where did you the drivers form and in what order did you install them?
If it isn't a fresh install of the OS, why are you trying to install the audio drivers?
Is you XP installation disk an SP2 or SP3? or have you integrated SP3 your self?
I wouyld suggest you do a fresh install, with SP2 if possible, and before doing any windows updates install teh drivers from the web site in this order: chipset audio video LAN anything else
Also check audio is enabled in BIOS
I didnot install os after bios update. Audio is enable in bios.
The easiest thing would probably be jsut to reinstall the OS.
Other wise does the audio devices appear in the device manager? if so you could try uninstalling them, then scanning for new hardware and reinstalling the dirver
