Reformatted my desktop, now no sound drivers?

Specs: Windows XP

I reformatted my desktop, now no sound drivers?
I need download and install the audio driver but it's not on the mfg website. I have tried all obvious options and nothing works. Speakers do work because when I touch the little green plug to the metal, I can hear it in the speakers.
Lenovo 3000 H200 series, Windows XP home, SP2, Legacy audio. Like I said I tried everything, system settings, etc.
I have done ALL of the obvious. I'm beginning to think it's the motherboard. How would I fix that?

"I'm beginning to think it's the motherboard"
You are 1/2 right, you need the MB drivers, they usually come on a CD with the comp.

This should find them if needed.

Yeah there weren't any significant driver downloads at lenovo.com. Odd. I did find these:

"Lenovo 3000 H200 series, Windows XP home, SP2"

You should install SP3 & the rest of the Windows Updates ASAP. You're not doing yourself any favors by running an outdated-outdated OS. It's very possible that the sound drivers will be installed automatically thru Windows Update after SP3 is installed. From what I could find, the audio chip used on your board is the Realtek ALC662.

BTW, motherboard model number appears to be 945GCD-LI.

Did you try looking in the "Device Manager" to see if the sound card was found and if XP installled drivers or has "Unknown device ! " beside it.

If it has drivers installed try uninstalling the sound device and the restarting your computer and let XP rediscover the sound hardware and try to install default drivers.
