Got model number & typed serial number into FSC site then downloaded drivers from site, tried installing them via device manager but still it says no device under sound etc. but still nothing.. Think its prob because of the new motherboard... Any clues as to where I go next?

have tried to change to onboard realtek ac97 so went into Bios and tried enabling device, then windows won't boot, just keeps loading and then chucking me out.. had to go back in, change settings to disabled to get back to XP. Any help I desperately need sound my kids absolutely love CBeebies websites etc and are not impressed with lack of audio??

Take it back to the PC shop and have them fix it. I suspect they replaced the motherboard with a different model, but didn't reload Windows XP, as they should have done.

Do you see any errors for hardware in Device Manager?

No errors but Device Manager does not bring up any audio device whatsoever. I am presuming that the original sound card must have been removed and so I have to use onboard sound?? I have 3 jacks in the back, green, blue & pink but how to I enable onboard sound and sorry to seem completely blonde but would the installed sound card have to have been removed when the motherboard was replaced? or did the techy take it out and forget to put it back in?
