Specs: Windows XP PRO, 2.00 gigahertz 768 Megabytes
No Audio Device
I Re installed Win XP Pro on a Packard Bell PC every thing went well, however I have no Audio Device in Sound & Speech in Control panel.

Checked the drivers in Device Manager and there are no Yellow ? anywhere, however if I play the Sample Music it plays fine in Windows Media Player?

I have looked in the BIOS and can see nothing, so I selected to Set The Default Settings just to see if that helped, no joy.

I also had a look in Packard Bell's home page, but nothing there helped.

Below is a copy of what Bearc Advisor showed:

✔ Best Answer

All drivers should be available from Gateway Support..
