Hp pavillion 873c no sound or video options

Hi, I just put a hard drive in this HP and installed a fresh copy of Windows XP Home. The only sound I can get is from Windows media player, no system sound at all! I have done microsoft update and installed realtek drivers and nothing happens after they install. Also all the options are faded so you cant test or change them. The video is the same way, I cant even change themes, The propeties button does nothing when you click on it.
Any advice or help would be appriciated.
Thanks, Bryan

  1. Does this happen in Safe Mode as well bryan?

    Restart your computer in 'Safe Mode with Networking Support'.
    (To do this: Power on your computer and start tapping the F8 key at the top of your keyboard rapidly until the Windows Start Menu appears. Then select the Safe Mode with Networking Support menu option and press the Enter key)
