Just so you know its a very old computer running XP service pack 2. The sound card appears to be integrated with the motherboard.
After the reformat pretty much everything sorted itself out apart from the sound, I chucked a couple of disks in that he had lying around and one of them seemed to find the sound card drivers and installed it all so it now tells me it's installed and working but there's still no sound!
I tried googling the sound card but found nothing, it doesn't seem to exist! I did a few windows updates and installed service pack 3 but still nothing, if anything it's caused more problems such as internet slow down!
I've made sure its not muted and the speakers are switched on at max volume. Any more ideas? --- Smoke me a kipper, I'll be back for breakfast!
what's funny is that you expect help yet provide no model numbers whatsoever for either the motherboard or the PC in question. --- http://pcpartpicker.com/b/GCJ http://youtu.be/AEKc-vNv_rU - updated 11/21/2013

i still have the original driver disc that came with my mobo and use it for both network and sound drivers whenever i install or change xp.
i'm glad windows 7 doesn't need this though so maybe you should make sure it's the disc that came with the computer and not some random one. --- PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy. http://www.steamgamesales.com/
You wrote over the sound driver. Search for the computer model and there should be website on google where you can download the right sound driver. --- Snake: There's no happiness found in death, no peace either; I'm leaving here alive, because a strong man doesn't need to read the future, he makes his own.
There should be a model number written somewhere on the tower. You need to google search that model number for sound drivers. --- Snake: There's no happiness found in death, no peace either; I'm leaving here alive, because a strong man doesn't need to read the future, he makes his own.
