You may have onboard Sound, If you have, Drivers come with a Motherboard CD, or can be had at the Motherboard Site.

Frankie,have you updated the microsoft updates since reinstall ?

Without knowing your sound card,i should mention MS have released an update that conflicts with Realtec sound cards...though this may not apply to you.There is a fix/patch click here

Following up on skidzy, It's not a good idea to let Microsoft load drivers for Hardware, as it as been known to create problems

You can also restore old Drivers in Device Manager
