I lost sound on my HP pavilion (Windows ME). Went to BIOS and enable Audio Codec. After that PC just hangs at Windows ME logo screen. After much research, I ran msconfig and unchecked all under Selective Startup. Then each time I would slowly add back. As a result, everything is back....EXCEPT for Static VxD items. If I check any of the .VXD item, PC will either hang or start in safe mode. So as it stands, I cannot install my wireless netword adapter (which works previously for the past 2 weeks). It seems the USB port (any of them) to which I connect the adapter is not recognized. I draw the conclusion that these ports are tied to these VxD files in some way. What can I do at this point?

have you tried a scanreg /restore back to a date before the problem started?


have you tried SFC?

I did a system restore back to the last checkpoint (which is one week ago). Didn't solve problem. Restored back a few more weeks and still didn't work. Not sure what a scanreg and/or SFC is. Thanks.
