Is there a virus or any circumstance that makes windows fail to reconize ANY sound device (including on-board sound), and occasionally change the start bar to retro windows skin? Ive reinstalled, updated drivers. Pulled out and changed PCI slots multipul times. Been through the device manager countless times.
The sound card im running is an creative labs audigy 4. And Im running XP.
When I plug it into my mobo the dooo deee dooo dooo (opening windows) sound plays. But as it boots up, nothing comes up in the sound device windows. Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING is greyed out. But when I use my sound card, it never works. When I check the device manager, it says its installed and working fine, but the sound device manager wont even register anything (including motherboard sound). I've tried everything. Help.
