I recently was able to clear up a software virus problem on a friends PC with help from bleeping members which I'm always very happy to get. Only now I find that once I can navigate around and check things out that the sound system was garbled when listening to Internet radio and that the CD/DVD players (there are 2) also do not work.

I replaced the CD/DVD combo player that wasn't working with my CD/DVD Player to see if it was something different then a hardware problem. My CD/DVD Player didn't work either in her PC. So, I'm taking it that there still is a software problem somewhere.

I don't seem to have a problem using the PC for Internet access, doing email and the like but the sound and the CD/DVD Players will not work.

I'd love to do a total reinstall but that is kind of hard seeing that I don't have access to a CD/DVD Player right now.

Does anyone have any ideas on what might be wrong here and how to take care of it. Thanks.

You might try downloading the latest drivers for your sound card and see if that helps. Or go into your device manager (controlpanel, system, hardware, device manager) and uninstall the sound card there. Restart your computer and Windows should find it again and load a default driver for it. But I would try to get the manufacturers driver, they are better. :thumbsup:
