Hi Dumb Blonde -
Can you go back to where you where with pcpitstop and restart the process you were undertaking - Then when you get to where you started to uncheck items, see if any of the items you unchecked are there and try to re-activate them - I know you say you tried it but look again -
First copy and paste this Disk Check item into Start > Run > then click OKCMD /C ECHO Y|CHKDSK C: /R | SHUTDOWN /R /T 30Next - Insert your Install CD and type sfc /scannow into the Run box and press enter -
SFC = System File Checker -
Thank You -
EDIT - Go to Start > Accessories > System tools > System Restore and click on the "System Restore Settings" in the Left side - Make sure the item marked "Turn off System Restore" has no tick in it - If it does then Un-check it - You will then be able to set restore points -

MSConfig is not for enabling or disabling startup programs or services. It is only for diagnosis of problems and should be used only if you have problems. There are other programs for disabling startup items. I am appalled at PCPitstop's advice of using msconfig for this reason. You should chooe Normal startup in the Msconfig main window and click OK then reboot.
These are my suggestions :
Start Menu > Run > type services.msc and press Enter. Check that Windows Audio service is running and is set to automatic. In the device manager, select your Realtec device under Sound, video and game controllers. Right click on it and choose uninstall. From Add/Remove programs, uninstall Realtec driver, reboot and re-install the driver.

Romeo, just in case it would save you some time in trouble shooting this, I checked to make sure that all services that the Windows Audio service depend upon are started and set to automatic on the OP's system and according to those screen shots, they are.

Thank you Stang777 Everything seems to be as it should be.
Dumb Blonde, which service pack of Windows XP are using ? In Windows XP prior to SP3, you need to install Microsoft UAA hotfix KB888111. You can download this from http://download.cnet.com/kb888111-exe/3000...0_4-104699.html

Okay, in that there is a possibility that new drivers are not working for your Windows. You should uninstall the drivers from Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs. Reboot and re-install drivers from the Sony drivers CD.
If nothing else works, then the only solution, in my opinion, would be to use the System Recovery DVDs. If you do not have the recovery DVDs, you can order them from Sony.
