  1. Hi

    I cant hear a thing!
    I installed again the creative soundblaster driver but it remains the same!
    I've tried to do hardware check from "sound ..." properties & it reboot the pc in the middle (crashes)

    Before the driver re-installed there was only high noise from the speaker!!!

    Please help?

    Thanks

    Ron

    What make and model is your computer?
    What Operating System are you running?

    You can just as easily put this information in your Profile, being preferred ;)

    Also check h e r e for updated drivers on your specific manufacture (you may need to uninstall the present ones first)
