Hi there.

First things first - have you tried a simple reboot? This may cure it.
If not, try Settings. Control Panel, Sound and see if all settings look OK.

Will an Audio CD play?

If not, look under System - Device Manager- Sounds and Video. Highlight your sound card entry and see if there are any conflicts reported. If there are you will probably have to reinstall its drivers from the CD that came with the card.

More info about your system and OS would help, plus the exact wording of a few of those error messages you are getting.

nothing at all would work, so i went to my hardware installer and uninstalled the sound card and reinstalled and it was fine. i had installed a dvd player and it somehow disrupted the sound action. thanks for the help, you guys have a great site, and it helps a lot of us amatuers.

Hi again,
Checking card connections would have been the logical next step and I'm glad it all came out okay.

BTW - we are all amateurs you know, pros get paid!

And don't forget, you just might have an answer to someone else's problem so you could drop in every now and then to see what's on the boards - that's what most of us do!.
