NO Sound, at all.

For some reason, out of the blue, I have no sound on my PC. Playing media files with any program, sounds on web sites, not even any system sounds. Device manager no errors. Kids use PC for on line games etc. They never go into any systems but could they have deleted something easily that could have effected it??? Running XP Pro SP2, SB sound card, 2.1 Speakers.
Cheers, Garry.

* Logout and then select Turn off Computer. Wait a few minutes and then start the computer.

* When Windows starts you should get the normal Windows start up melody. If you do then at least you know that your sound-card and speakers are working.

* If you hear the Windows start up melody then open the sound-card adjustment program. The icon should be in the systray. Check all the controls and ensure that they are set appropriately.

* If you hear nothing when Windows starts then reinstall the sound-card software. You should have received a CD with the sound-card. If you don't have a CD go to Creative's website and download the software for your sound-card. CAREFUL!!! Make sure that you download the correct software.

99% of the time this will solve the problem.

The other thing you may want to do is try to determine which game is corrupting SB's files and send a bug-report to both Creative and the maker of the game.

Thanks Guys.
Wave volume turned right down.
Couldn't find it easily because I have some sort of sound manager installed. All done now though.
Ta, Garry.
