Default Need Help

Hi,
I could really, really use some help. I just recently reformatted my computer and now I apparently have no audio device so I don't have sound on my computer. I've checked the device manager, and according to it, it says that I do have drivers installed. They are the following:
- Audio Codecs
- Legacy Audio Drivers
- Legacy Video Capture Devices
- Media Control Devices
- Video Codecs

Anyone have any thoughts as to why the sound isn't working??

I lost my motherboard driver cd my motherboard is ASUS P4S8X-X 133 megahertz

erm i dont know much about what im doing i used something called Belarc because i didnt know what my motherboard was but it says this

BIOS: Award Software, Inc. ASUS P4S8X-X ACPI BIOS Revision 1002 01/24/2003


what ever that means i really want to get my sound back

THANKS!

You may need to update your BIOS but i dont think you are going to need beta do you rember if you had a diffrent verison of your BIOS since you reformatted if you do then you might need to update your BIOS to your previous version i dont have the same mobo as you so im not sure witch sound drivers you need but it sure would help if you had your mobo disc. and what do you mean by you dont know how to install it?
