No sound

I installed XP Professional SP3 on my daughter’s desktop PC. Unfortunately, in my haste I did think about audio sound issues.

The device manager is showing ‘Other devices’ with a yellow ? I have tried ‘Update drivers’ to no avail. I downloaded Realtek AC97, still no joy.

I am not even a novice when it comes to ‘sound’ problems. I would appreciate any advice to resolve the problem. Thank you.

The OS. XP Pro SP3 CPU. AMD Sempron MOBO. ECS M863 Chipset. 741GX

Downloaded Drive Max, it highlighted the sound driver. Downloaded driver and installed, but message appeared: THIS DEVICE CANNOT START Code 10. I think I shall leave it for a few days and maybe have the courage to try again. Thank you.
