No sound after XP reinstall

I recently installed a new Seagate 500 gb sata hard drive and
| reinstalled WinXP Home on my daughter's computer. This replaced
an
| 80 gb Seagate sata. I also removed a Soundblaster Audigy sound
card
| which came on the computer because she said it sounded garbled
| (whatever that means). I had a Mad Dog Multimedia Predator 5.1
that
| I had removed from an older computer that I gave away. It says
| compatible with xp and I have the installation disk. I
uninstalled
| all reference to Soundblaster. She has 5.1 surround sound speaker
| set that came with her computer. Now there is absolutely no sound
| coming from her computer at all. So far I have checked every
| setting that I can think of with no luck. All volumes are turned
| up, it shows up in device manager with no error, I have
uninstalled
| and reinstalled the card and drivers. I have checked the plugs
and
| all connections for the speakers. When I installed the card
| originally I had her computer connected to an extra monitor which
| had integrated speakers and there was no sound problem. I am
| beginning to think her speakers are bad but haven't tested them on
| any other computer yet. I'm hoping there is a simple solution to
| this. Anybody?

Try downloading XP specific drivers here :

Uninstall those that are currently on your machine and install the download,
did that work ?

Cheers,
