Ok. I'm 16 and can manage my way around the compter, but My problem is that the sound recently quit working. I did all the normal stuff, checked the speakers and they work. The symtoms of my problem are in windows media player, the visualizations do not activate as neither does the music play. I have a Dell dimensions 4100 w/windows ME. I installed a sounmax driver which self extracted and that did not fix the prob. any ideas?? thanks for the help.
