Hi,

I'd like to thank everyones suggestions for helping me out with a total reinstall of Windows XP Pro and SP 2. I love it, its doing stuff I didn't know it can do. And it's crisp, clear and quick and not flickering and faiding in and out like a ghost. I think the guy I bought the computer from that custom built it (and he's really good at that) all ready had it running for 2 years before I got it. So it must of been up for a reinstall. What a difference. It's great. BUT ONE THING, WHERE DID THE SOUND GO??? I don't get why it didn't install sound on the reinstall. Could someone explain that to me? And more important can someone tell me how to get my sound back??? I checked under device manager and all the drivers are OK. I don't know where else to go? How to get the sound back on after reinstall?
ANYONE? Thanks.

John :thumbsup:

What kind of soundcard do you have? Are the speakers plugged into the right port? Is the plug all the way in? Do CD's play, or is it just system sound? There may be other software necessary for the soundcard to function. (Although I've got a SoundBlaster Live! and didn't bother to load the supplemental software . . .)

Do you see an Icon of a speaker in your taskbar (bottom right side near the clock)?

Hi Guys,

It was a driver not installed that was giving me the problem. The 2nd time I went back to the Device Manager I found what wasn't installed, just a sound driver. So with that installed I'm very happy with the re-installation of my OS and an upgrade to 1.5 mb/sec. from my ISP. It's finally fast enough and Crystal clear, just happy with it. Thanks.
