In trying to get the Microphone recording side of a USB head set software to work I fear I have trashed the sound system probably by downloading a wrong driver. The remedy then would be to System restore to before the malarky. There are many Restores points going back weeks. But none will restore every attempt to last Wednesday- that is a week previous- checkpoints- have failed to restore. What next I thought - SFC scannow? Tried that- got a flash of a dos screen then nothing. OK put in the XP Pro full disk to see if a repair or write over can be done. Nope - this reports the system is new than the disk- meaning I guess the recent SP3 in put. So without a total reformat any ideas chaps?
Thank you one and all. See how it is suggestion that should be in the forefront of ones mind- if I had read this from some one else,but did not surface when in a tangle oneself. Will try them all. Will come back with the outcome - later.
