Hi Prominia...

Click Start, then Run, and type services.msc...click "Ok".

Scroll down the list to Windows Audio. Under "Status", is it Started?

Let's take a look at all the default settings for sound. Your sound device = SB Audigy 2 Audio

If you have the correct sound device drivers installed...check the XP sound settings in Control Panel.
  • Open Control Panel and double-click on the "Sounds and Audio Devices" icon.
  • Under the "Sounds" tab, select "Windows default" in the Sounds Scheme drop down menu.
  • Under the "Audio" tab, make sure that your sound device is listed in the top two sections...if not, select it from the drop down menu.
  • Under the "Voice" tab, make sure your sound device is listed in both boxes...if not, select it.
  • Under the "Volume" tab, put a tick in the box to "Place volume icon in the taskbar".
  • Click "Apply" and then "Ok".
Now look down by the clock...is there a little speaker there? If yes, double-click on it and make sure there is not a tick in the box next to "Mute" and that the Volume sliders are all set to at least halfway.

Reboot...Sound?

have you ever cleaned the inside of your computer

shut down computer and unplug it from the wall

remove side panel and clean inside with can of air

blow all the dust out of it

and if you can remove the sound card and reinsert it

do all of this carefully once your done and complete

turn computer back on check device manager and check your card

right click on all the drivers and click update on each one

if i knew the make of your computer along with model number

i could find the driver for your sound drivers

Thanks for all the help. I finally got it to work and its strange. I uninstalled the soundblaster driver, and did not reinstall one and now it is working. I do not know how long it will last, but hopefully it stays good.
