My home laptop pc crashed a couple of weeks back....I had Windows XP reloaded....I have email, Internet Explorer , My Documents, Photos etc but I cannot get my sound to work, even researching in detail the Lenovo website...
Any assistance to rectify would be much appreciated. It appears that I have NO sound device ? !....

Go to device manager and look for any yellow exclamation marks for any device.Your sound device might be present but drivers might have not been installed

Thank you for your help mrpeter1985 , my sound now works. I already had downloaded Realtek Audio Driver on my C drive a week ago....but for some reason at the AdDrvLdr.EXE path the device driver wizard was not launched....I launched it and when it finished it read " The Application Failed to initialize ".
