Did you reinstall the audio drivers for your machine, when you reinstalled the software after the crash?

Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling your sound card from the device manager in control panel?

Check the Device Manager to see if there are any devices showing up that do not appear to have the drivers installed.

| Start >> Run >> devmgmt.msc | (this one goes straight to the Device Manager node)

-OR-

| Start >> right-click My Computer >> Manage | (this one goes to the Computer Management console)

You will want to ensure that you are working with the Device Manager node if you use the Computer Management console.

Any devices for which you have hardware with no associated driver will appear with a yellow circle containing a white question mark. There may not be anything initially when you open the console, so run a scan for hardware changes.

| right-click the Local Machine icon at the top of the tree in the right hand pane >> Scan for hardware changes |

-OR-

| highlight the Local Machine icon >> click Actions >> Scan for hardware changes |

Again you're looking for hardware devices with the yellow circle containing a white question mark. Most likely you will see an item pop-up indicated as "PCI Device" - this is probably your audio card for which there are no drivers installed.

If you scroll down to the Sound, video and game controllers node of the hardware tree. You should see the following items in the list by default:
| Audio codecs
| Legacy audio drivers
| Legacy video capture drivers
| Media control devices
| Video codecs

There should be one more item in the list which indicates your audio card. Assuming you don't see any "PCI Device" with the yellow circle.

Another place you can check to see if the drivers are installed for your audio device is Sounds and Audio Devices applet in the Control Panel.

| Start >> Control Panel >> Sounds and Audio Devices |

When you open the applet, the first tab is the Volume tab. If you have a sound card installed with the appropriate drivers, you should see the make and model of your audio card. If there are no audio drivers installed for your audio card, then it will indicate "there are no audio devices installed".

Hope this helps!
