Hello. I have just used system restore on Win XP and the sound has just disappeared. I tried undoing the system restore but I still can't get it back :( These are some things I've noticed...

- When I try playing music the volume control icon in the task bar momentarily flashes a red circle with a red line across it, but only the first time.

- I used to see a 'What U Hear' option when recording sound with Creative MediaSource Player, but it has disappeared and I see a Record Master option that does the same thing.

- I can record sound through my PC and play it back (i can see the soudwaves) but I don't hear anything.

I have a Creative SoundBlaster Live! card. I have never had this problem before. I have checked all connections, settings and audio driver but can't figure it out.

Any help would be greatly apreciated. Thanks

welcome to tsf
have you checked your device manager for yellow conflict symbols?
you might need to uninstall then reinstall the sound blaster software

Yeah they're not yellow (or weren't). I uninstalled the driver then installed the wrong one I think! So i uninstalled that one. At the moment I don't have any drivers installed. I can't find the right one again, even on the Creative website. I try to install what it says is the right one but it can't find a certain file or something.

So you have tried the software autoupdate and it came up with that error?
