It really depends on your sound card and whether it has legacy drivers for use in safe mode and dos.

Yes, you could manually load the drivers in a command prompt if you knew what to do.

My soundcard is a Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2. It has (in the Device Manager) "Legacy Audio Drivers."

If I can load the drivers from the CPrompt, do you know how I would do that?

Thanks oshwyn,
CMA

I hate to contradict oshwyn5, but as far as I know Safe Mode was designed specificly to NOT load sound card drivers so that Safe Mode would have a better chance of actualy loading. After all, if you're booting to Safe Mode 'casue your sound card drivers are faulty, it doesn't help things if safe mode tries to load those same drivers, now does it?
As far as I know, there is no such animal as a Safe Mode sound card driver.
You are, as always, free to hack the registry and see what you can find.

Lol,

So your saying there is no practical way to load the sound drivers in safe mode? Unless I have a guide, I don't really intend on hacking into the registry. Better safe than sorry.

Yes I solved the problem, and added a attachment file for you to do a work with the soundsolution on windows, cause I only have windows 7 so I made it for it, but it is possible to edit the reg file and do it on vista and xp to :)

For people stealing my work, don't do that, credit me, cause many people ask about this each day so let me have the gratitude to have done this ;)

check out anyway my music at www.myspace.com/dealazer cause I like music and I wanted to listen to music in Safe-Mode

Peace Dealazer

I have Windows Vista. So, how do I enable sound with it in Safe Mode? I tried downloading the links you posted, but nothing happened because the volume icon is still crossed (x'ed) out. What should I do?
