    Hi, this is my first post on this board.

    My computer currently does not play any sound. Under device manager, there is an exclamation point next to the Creative SB Live! Series (WDM) entry.

    Can this be solved by just uninstalling the driver for that device, restarting the computer, and allowing Windows to reinstall the driver?

    I recently had a problem with my USB ports --- namely, that nothing was being recognized by them. All the USB Root Hub entries had the same exclamation points, and I was told to uninstall and reinstall the driver for the Enhanced Host Controller. This worked, and so I'm wondering if I just have to do the same thing this time around.

    I have another problem with this computer (involving an incredibly long load-up time between signing in under a profile and being able to use any programs), but I'd like to do one thing at a time here. Thanks for any help you can give.

    I'd try uninstalling the driver and rebooting. If your running an XP it should provide a sound driver for Creative? If not - pop up to Microsoft updates and click Custom not Express and see what comes up under your Hardware, for system updates. Jazz
