You need to install the proper sound drivers for your specific motherboard. Google "aida32" and download a copy, its free. It doesn't install, you just un zip it somewhere and run the exe file and it will examine your pc. Look through the results and see if it can identify your motherboard manufacturer and model number, then go to their website for the latest drivers for everything. If you want to look manually the model number is usually located between the pci slots and will be silk-screened on the board. When you were given the pc did it come with any disks? If so you can go to the yellow ? mark select update drivers and point it to the disk for the motherboard that came with the pc. You may have to be more specific and look for a folder for audio on the disk and perhaps an XP or Win98 section whatever fits your needs.
