Need Help. (Failed Fixes shown below)
Errors (3): Audio switcher out (see attached), Windows sounds not playable (see attached)
System Restore falsely says-> "Your computer cannot be restored to: (point a) No changes have been made...
Error started 12/24, Updates made 12/19 no funny buisness detecteted prior to 12/24.
Coincidently Windows Media Player security updates indicated by System Restore for 12/24 @ ~1AM. System restore removed these to no effect.

Computer Info:
OS : XP Home, SP 3, 32 bit
Processor: Intel Pentium 4 CPU 3.06GHz, x86
Motherboard: ASUSTeK Computer INC., Goldfish3,
Chipset: Intel i915GL

Graphics Card: Intel(R) 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family, 512 Mb
Processor Count: 1
Hard Drives: 1
Antivirus: Yes , Updated: Yes

Attempted Fixes:
1. I went to control panel>system>hardware>device manager; No yellow exclamation marks.
Despite this removed and Reinstalled the Realtek HD driver.(Atached realtek driver download site.JPG)

2. I went to ASUS's website got stuck in repeating loop. http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us

3. Found an 'auto-update' program from realtek or asus that indicated I had 16 old/broke/conflicting drivers and wanted $30 to fix it. Found free "SlimDrivers" (www.driverupdate.net) indicating I had 17 old/broke/conflicting drivers. Updated all the ones relating to sound etc.

4. Help :'(
