Hello,
Hey, im not very smart with computers so im asking people reading this to help me. Thanks :) 
I recently installed Windows vista ultimate to my computer but for some reason the sound wouldnt work but there was a sound device installed to my computer not only that, the net keep crashing so i decided that i would reinstall windows XP Pro back and how it was like before. I dont know if it installed Service pack 1 or 2 (like i said im a newbie with computers haha) but it says that i have service pack 3 installed. But anyways the Windows Xp
installation went great only problem is that i dont have sound device installed.
I downloaded realtek HD audio driver but still no sound :/  I know realtek is the right driver because before i installed windows vista i remember having it installed in my computer.
Thanks in advance :D 



Heres some specs:

Go to www.lenovo.com
Download the drivers for your system.

You should be able to just install the System Update (XP version is 3.15), and run it to get the drivers from Lenovo.

I have downloaded the driver for my system (ADI soundmax audio driver) and thats the only one they have but as you can see i have realtek audio driver. And i tried downloading ADI soundmax audio driver from a different site to get it in my system but wouldnt let me cause it says that i dont have the driver preinstalled.
I also tried looking up and downloading realtek audio driver for my model system but couldnt find it.
what should i do, im out of ideas :/
