Have had to re-install XP on an evesham machine due to mega problems with computer constantly crashing. Since re-install have a few problems -1. No sound card detected 2. Unable to change resolution, and system will not recognise monitor ( dell flatscreen );it is stuck in default monitor mode and will not allow me to change properties 3. Unable to use standby mode - can only shut down or restart computer
Just a thought db07, has your computer got onboard sound or has it a seperate soundcard. If it has onboard sound then you install the drivers that came with the motherboard. For example my mainboard is a Gigabyte one and the sound drivers are on the same disk as the Via drivers for the motherboard.
