So I was running Windows 2000 before I upgraded to XP Pro. I always had sound, no problem. As soon as I loaded XP, my sound was gone. I've checked the drivers and the device status - it tells me everything is working properly. I've checked all the connections and the speakers are turned on. The card I'm using is a Creative Sound Blaster PCI. Any suggestions? I've also tried uninstalling and reinstalling the driver.

remove the card from device manager and readd, make sure that ALL volume controls are set and nothing is on mute.

Well, what happened when you rebooted?
Did P&P find the card you removed and reinstall it?

Yes, the computer reinstalled the driver and the system indicates everything should work. But no luck.... This is a real stumper.

What motherboard are you running? I have an ECS that uses an amr modem. I installed a new PCI modem and my sound would not work either untill I installed the drivers for the amr card that I uninstalled. Any AMD motherboard cd will help you with that problem. If you'r using an AMD cpu. You can go to Amptron or ECS to download the modem for you'r board and install it.

Sounds silly. But untill I put in my mainboard cd for xp to detect a modem in an empty slot. I had no sound. It's the audio driver it needs from that modem to work.
