Default ? about audio driver problem and formatting drive

ECS 945P/PL-A 1.X custom built computer
the multimedia audio controller driver somehow uninstalled itself??? i needa fix this so i can get sound
i was using 3.1 bose before on this and it worked perfectly. dont have the speakers no more and i was tryin to use these lil walkman speakers and system information says the driver isn't installed so wt happened and how can i fix this?

also i was thinking of re/formatting this computer because its 1.8ghz and 1gig memory only using 6% of 120g drive yet its slow. but i dont have the windows disc for this computer nor does it have a secondary drive so can i still do this without the disc and secondary drive? is it even necessary?

If you are going to format and reinstall you need a windows disc. There is software you can get to extract the OEM number from your windows installation then you can borrow someone else's windows (I'm assuming XP) disc and install it using your OEM number.

Drivers don't just uninstall themselves. The bose speakers you had, were they digital speakers? Maybe the drivers for the analog connector were never installed to begin with?
