hey everyone! :grin:

this is my first time on this forum. i have found it through google while searching for an answer to my problem. i am not even sure im posting in the right area, but anyway.

my problem is as follows:
two days ago, when i turned on my computer, sound simply didn't work. i have checked the control panel (sounds and settings) and it says "no audio device avalible".

i have tried reinstalling the driver, but that didn't work.

i have an almost new creative soundblaster audigy 4 soundcard.
my other computer specifications are:
windows xp professional service pack 2
768mb ram
amd athlon 2000mhz (1.27ghz)

what else can i try, to make it work again? any suggestions are welcome!

Welcome to TSF. :wave:

Look in Device manager (To open Device manager: Click Start >> Run >> Type devmgmt.msc and click OK).
Click View >> Show hidden devices.
Any yellow or red "marks" in device manager?

Also - make sure the audio has been started by Windows:

Click Start > Run > type services.msc - then click OK.
In the new window - Scroll down to "Windows Audio", right-click on it and select Properties.
Another new window - set the startup type to Automatic, click Apply and then click Start.

What motherboard do you have?

Have a look at this:
