    I have no sound after reinstall of Windows XP SVC 2 after a massive crash. I did not do reinstall, paid a nerd but no sound when I got machine back. So I reloaded drivers etc. I had sound for a couple of days and no sound again. device manager says all devices are working they are working. Tried reinstall of drivers no sound. Tried unplug replug speakers and all that. Nothing is muted in any control, tried downloading chipsets from dell. I dont know what to do next.

    have you got mutliple media players installed?

    if you have then check the volume on each one.

    are you using a sound card or is it integrated? which model of card / motherboard is it?

    Uninstall the soundcard that IS NOT your creative card. Then go into your BIOS and disable it.

    Well, get into your bios, usually that is achieved by pressing F2 or Delete.

    Once in the bios, find something relating to one of the following 'HD Audio' 'AC`97' <-- that one 'ac97' is one thing not two. 'Onboard Audio'. Usually whatever it is labeled as on the bios is pretty straight forward and obvious. The only one not so obvious is the AC`97 which is obvious if you know what AC97 means. =P (Audio Codec 97)
