I have the same problem! I just bought a thinkpad t40 and installed my xp and it says i have no audio hardware
The dialog box says that there is no active mixer device installed. I tried to extract a copy of SNDVOL32.exe using expand sndvol32.ex_system_root/system32/sndvol32.exe but the cmd said that it can't open input file. what should i do?
