Try removing all references to your sound card in device manager and uninstall the drivers. Now restart the computer and windows should find your sound card and ask for the drivers.

Hi, Sounds like your card needs re-seating. One end has probably eased up a little not giving you full contact. Cheers, Bill

Thank you for coming to my aid, ton and billyliv,

I should have stated 'device manager' but that's ok you knew what I meant.

Problem solved removed drivers, eased sound card back in set it all back up again now have luverly music to my ears. Gave a spring clean while I was at it.

Gratefully yours Sweets
