Hey, I am having a few computer problems. I know my way around my computer a bit, but this problem has me completely confused!
I turned my computer on today, and I didn't get any audio and no internet connectivity. It appears as if my display drivers are working just fine, as I loaded up and the resolution was just fine, and if I try to hop into a game, it doesn't give me any errors other then no sound drivers. I know for a fact I have sound drivers installed, but just to be safe, I tried reinstalling them. After reinstalling my mobo and sound card drivers, still no luck. I go into control panel and then "Sound and Audio Devices" and there is no device listed. Everything is grayed out, also when I go to Network Connections, there are no ports available. I also tried to plug in an external ethernet card that works on another computer, and it wouldn't even pick that up. Its also not recognizing my USB thumb drive, I had to download the drivers from my laptop and put them on my Ipod to transfer them to my desktop, but it didn't do anything. Also, I checked BIOS, and it appears to recognize my hardware. I saw HD Audio device at the least.
I am on...
Windows XP SP3
Creative SB X-Fi
4 gigs of Ram
Any help would be really appreciated...THANKS!
