My sound on my windows xp me 2005 is not working and I have a sound card from creative. I have the latest drivers and i was recently messing around with the original system setup disk and the setup utility before the operating system loads. I soon realized that I didn't have any sound and in the diagnostics tool it claims that I have no sound card. I was wondering if someone could help me out with this issue. Thank you.

Try getting the drivers again. You might've cleaned your drivers out through the CD.

Oh. Then try disconnecting the soundcard and reconnecting it? It might be incorrectly plugged in or loosely plugged in.

Did you try doing a System Restore?

Also, now since these common problems aren't addressed to your case, can you tell me what exactly were you doing with your computer at that point of time? eg: What settings did you tamper with, what did you do to this/that,etc..

Ok then. That's good. :)

Yeah, I get what you mean.

Anyway, next time a problem happens like this, use System Restore first. :)
