Hi guys.  Bit of a problem.  For various reasons, unrelated to the audio / sound card, I had to reinstall XP on a laptop.

After reinstalling XP, I download all the various drivers and installed them.  The one Audio driver needed for the 610m was STAC 92XX C-Major HD Audio from Sigmatel.  However, when I installed it, the sound kept cracking.  I unistalled and reinstalled the driver and still the same thing.

Later that night however, the sound stopped working completely.  Looking in Device Manager, it didn't say that any device is not working properly.  When I went into sound options in Control Panel all options were locked out and I can't access them.

No matter what I do now, I can't get any sound or selection options etc.

Just some other information.

The following items are under Sound, video and game controllers in Device Manager

- Audio Codecs      - Legacy Audio Drivers       - Media Control Devices      - SigmaTel High Definition Audio CODEC      - Video Codecs

Each of the above says it is working properly.


As of yet, I don't have all windows updates on the computer and am presently installing SP3 on it.
