    I re formatted my win, XP and after I did the sound stoped working I put a
    cd in to play ang got this messagd

    Windows Media Player cannot play the file because there is a problem with
    your sound device. There may not be a sound device installed on your
    computer, it may be in use by another program, or it may not be functioning

    You need to install the driver for the sound card...

    I'll second that opinion. When I had to reinstall my OS the sound did
    not work until I installed the proper driver. Your installation disks
    should have the necessary driver for the sound card.

    Did you reinstall all the motherboard drivers after you reformatted?
    That is if you are using the sound chip on the motherboard. Otherwise if
    you are using a sound card you have to reinstall the drivers for it.
