    My wife's system has no sound. I did an upgrade install of XP pro hoping that might take care of it to no avail. The card shows up in the device manager as working properly, but in the sounds applet in control panel it says no sound device is installed. I have tried delting the cards and reinstalling from scratch, I've tried installing a different card none of those things work. I have spent many unhappy hours trying to make the thing function again.

    The system is running XP SP2
    AMD athlon 2800+
    Gigabyte GA 700VT600L
    1 gig memory
    Onboard sound or Soud Blaster Audagy (sp?)

    The system I am using now is the same configuration and it has never had a problem. I should say that her sound worked until a browser hijack got through. Once I cleaned it up the sound was gone.

    Having 2 systems set up the same way I thought would make troubleshooting esier. Nope.
    I have all the same services running as her box and I have sound I'm out of ideas short of a reformat and reload. She teaches school and has a TON of little programs that would require me to spend all my free time fo the next month reloading her box. I am out of ideas.
