:) :) I just re clocked my CPU and i got 1.44Ghz out of 1.11Ghz, But now my sound isnt working

I`ve tried WMP just to make sure it wasnt Firefox Issues and i got this error message "WMP can not play the file because there is a probable with you sound device. There might not be a sound device installed on your computer, it might be in use my another program, or it might not be functioning correctly."

And this is really strange to me because i`m still using the on-board Sound/video stuff

You have probably overclocked by using the FSB. This also overclocks any other hardware that uses the bus, thus overclocking the sound causing it to fail. I would not doubt that you have other problems but just have not found them yet. If you drop the FSB back to standard settings does the sound come back? You may have damaged the chipsetto where it does not work anymore. Many varibles here could cause the problem including overvoltage frying parts of the chipset. You may have just fried the speakers also.
