    Okay, instead of making a bunch of threads, I'm just going to make one big one xD
    I've installed Windows XP.
    I've fixed the keyboard lay out, I've got the internet working.. The problems now is:
    Sound drivers (Ain't getting no sound at all)
    My PC is lagging even though I've used only 3% of the Harddrive space.


    Could someone give me a hand? I've defragged my computer, I've downloaded like 30 sound drivers (none of them work)
    Any advice please?
    xD

    First off, what kind of sound card do you have?
    Make and model.
    Make sure your speakers are hooked up right, i swear sometimes people have them plugged into the wrong jack.

    well, Im not to sure how to get to device manager using XP so check this out:
    How can you get to the device manager window on windows (xp)
    Look for sound, video and game controllers, and click on the arrow next to it to expand it. Now you should see the name of your card there.
    Then report back to me, and ill tell you the rest.
    See if theres an error icon next to it also,

    That would be your best bet bro, is to switch out soundcards.
    Worked with me.
