    I'm running XP Pro, and I've just done a second clean install. I've roamed Google, tried different solutions, but have not found the solution. Any suggestions would be welcome!

    Thanks,

    Three possible causes, try this first please.
    sfc /scannow with XP CD in.
    Something has corrupted the system files for the display in Network Connections

    Thanks Macboatmaster!
    I did the scan, but the Networks Connection Folder is still empty. I'll reboot to see if that changes the folder.

    Nope! No change, except the computer restarted with the MS theme sound. First time. The sound works, but it had been booting up silently.
