    I wanted to try and run something in safe mode.. ( a game it runs faster) when it was loading up it showed press ESC to stop loading vax347b.sys. I didnt' do anything and it all started up fine.. but I have no sound.. and when I go in to device manager it shows everything that I can tell but there is no sound what so ever.. how do I go about fixing this if its possible. Thanks
    Sweet

    Though you see the sound card in Device Manager, the sound card drivers do not load in Safe Mode.

    In Device Manager - Sound, video and game controllers, double click on your sound card and you'll see a message that refers to the drivers not being recognized.
