Perhaps you need to do a google search for the sound device you have installed and download a driver compatible with XP Pro.

Have you fully updated XP Pro to the SP3 level and applied all the fixes that Microsoft have sent out over the years? If not, I suggest you visit the Microsoft updates page and get the OS up to current levels before trying to find a driver.

Hope this helps.

I believe BobH is correct in his analysis. From what I can make out in your screenshots, it wants a reinstall of your sound drivers BUT first check for and install all MS updates that it shows. Then go for the sound drivers.

If I agreed with you we'd both be wrong.
