I thought that the sound drivers had gone corrupt but rolling back and installing the drivers did not work.
As a last resort I tried to repair XP using the installation CD.(Not using recovery console).After the repair was over, the problem was solved and I got clear sound from my speakers.But after I accessed some DVDs ,I again had the same problem.Then I turned to System Restore and restored the system to the time after the repair.Again the problem was solved.
I thought that there was some software conflict but I couldnt find it out.Then suddenly the problem again resurfaced.Again I tried System Restore but it didn't work this time.So I opted for a clean XP re-install.Agian this solved the problem for awhile but again the problem appeared.System Restore is also not working and I don't want to install XP again.
I want to know if there is a method to repair only the sound files in my computer form the CD without going for a full repair or re-install.This problem is really getting out of hand....
