How strange!

Are you certain that you have reinstalled XP2 before reinstalling XP3? XP2 was a prerequisite to XP3.

Have you installed these sound drivers ?

Get them now because they are as rare as a pope's nose.

XP is no longer supported and finding stuff for XP is getting extremely difficult, no a days XP is a zombie. (Also very unsafe)

Good luck
