    We need to know the model number of your motherboard. Is this system home built?

    Download and install the audio drivers from the motherboard manufacturer's website,
    if that doesn't work, go to the device manager, select the non-working audio devices, and "uninstall" them, then try to install the audio drivers again.
    good luck

    Name it

    You named everything but the sound card or internal.
    Did you change any previous sound connections ?
    Go to Control Panel/Sound and Audio.
    Can you put your Vol control on the task bar ?
    New installs often mute sound.Check these settings.

    Is this another 'I hate Vista so I installed XP' thread or did you just reinstall?

    Do you have a clue about make/model/version of the hardware you own?

    ps: hiya Zip - where you been?

    Sometimes it is so hard to get a few simple, but very important details :confused:

    That C: drive space is also getting low
