    Hi, I have Windows 2k and on some applications which require sound, no sound comes.

    Some of those applications which dont have sound now are for example Winamp, and games like CounterStrike.

    This is wut i did prior to this problem, first i installed Windows 2000 w/ service pack 3 on my computer, and all the video card and sound card drivers. During the time when i had service pack 3 all applications needing sound worked perfectly. Then i installed Service pack 4, and after that i tried to run those apps, and on some of those apps no sound comes out of the speakers, just an irritating buzz :confused: .

    I looked for help, but all it said was to reinstall Windows 2000, which i definetely do not want to do.

    O ya and i tried reinstalling the sound drivers and some of the drivers that came on the motherboard cd, both of which didn't help the problem at all.

    I would appreciate any help,

    ABM
