Me again ,my son's HP pc with Xp home.Just had to reload Win Xp loaded all the drivers and everything worked,then I switched computer off ,on switching back on the sound had gone,reloaded the drivers,everything worked,but again on reboot no sound again.I keep getting yellow exl marks on audio devices,then reload drivers so I've disabled onboard sound and am using the latest drivers.Everything works till I reboot,switching users is ok.Tried putting files in Windows,using the sound card set up,using add harware and reinstall drivers.But they still disapear on reboot.

Could be a number of things.

Run this first and see what errors are picked up:

Re ArrGees post. The user reviews for that program don't fill me with confidence.

Slightly off tangent, but could you post me some negative reviews? I haven't had a single problem with it, but would like to know more.

Have you tried yourself?

Used System Works found no errors apart from missing drivers on reboot.No probs once drivers loaded

What AV are you using?

Use McAfee dosn't hog room like Norton only put Systemworks on to check comp.

How odd. Been using PCs, building them and helping others out for over a decade, and never had a problem to that degree. Oh well.

Are there any other conflicts in your device manager?

Only the Yellow exclimation marks on Audio devices which go when I reload the drivers.Had two on both audio devives till I disabled the on board sound in bios
