I'm making fun of him, but Rick (aka comp geek) has been a friend of mine for over 25 yrs...probably the most honest person I've ever known in my life...he actually dropped off some potatos, carrots, cabbage and corned beef he made for dinner tonight (for him and his ol' lady)...he's like a brother (better, actually...lol)...

This is the guy who fixed your PC? Comp Geek better get to your house would be what I would want!
check, check and check!!...still no sound...talked with the comp geek who fixed this and he says everything should be working...
Go to control panel click on drivers, get to your sound driver right click, find the properties and then use that information to go and update your driver.
I don't know...I've relayed to you all the info I have...sorry...
No, your sound card driver not your hard drive.
It's got a new driver installed...all new...which is why I don't understand...
Try updating your driver Ron? Could be when you went from Vista to XP the old driver no longer works. Try to go to Realtek and upload a XP compatable sound driver.
Hi there Guido...how was your trip?? Hope you had fun!!
Does, 'C drive' help?? And 'no' is the answer to your question. As I have reported, I have less knowledge than Freeze!!
"Main driver?!" No such thing. All drivers control one part of the motherboard or add-in card.
Terminology aside, do you know the make of your soundcard? Is it built in or an add-on? Creative (believe it or not) had MAJOR problems with Vista, for example.
If you have no idea how to find what I am asking, lemme know. BTW (says the guy typing on the Mac), Vista got better with the SP fixes...thus the "Mojave experiment" to change public perceptions. Still, I have XP running on four of my own personal build machines. Vista was a royal bomb.
Finally got the cpu back (been gone since b4 turkey day) and the problem was the main driver went bad...got rid of Vista and now back with XP...but now the speakers aren't working...I've clicked on everything I think I needed to, but still no sound...any advice anyone??
