Re: No audio after format
The reason you have no sound is like the above has posted, if have onboard sound and you reformat there will be no sound as you need to install the drivers of your sound card which will probably be the same as mine which is AC97, you could have got it from windows update but as your having trouble with that I suggest looking it up on goggle or try the above link, do you have a Motherboard Disc as it will be on that.
