w2k and sound

  the-george 15:13 27 Mar 2008

Have been nusing ME for years but needed to change because new Internet provider (Sky) does not support ME. So, I have installed 2000 Pro. I now get no sound from speakers.
have checked that speakers connected ok (tried 2 sets)and powered.
Have checked driver status in Device manager and all ok.
Have checked volume control and all are on max, nothing muted.
Have gone into control panel/sounds/audio tab and made sure pay device is the sound card SB live wave device.
Anything else I can try?

You wil need to upgrade the sound driver from ME to 2000

Do not think this is the problem as when I go through device manager to update drivers it tells me that the present drivers are ok and that the device is working correctly.
