I have gone to the device mgr and tried everything I could think of. I was told to remove the soundcard from device mgr then restart the computer and it should work right then, but I don't see the soundcard located anywhere on the device mgr.
I tried to go to the volume control and I get an error that says there are no active mixer devices installed. I get an error that there is a problem with my sound device when I try to play a music CD.
If I reinstall XP, doesn't it give me an option to save all my existing files that I have?
