Will that effect anything such as sound?
It can, will, and did in your case. It is one thing to use a borrowed disk when you have a legit key to use Windows, it is another to borrow and use a pirated copy. For starters with the disk you borrowed who knows what has been done to it.

Until you get a legit copy of Windows, sorry to say but you are on your own for figuring out what you need to get it running.
Awh, I'l make an effort in getting that disk. as for now. I need sound.
Thanks for your help anyway
