  1. Hi,
    I have just reinstalled Windows XP and cannot hear music anymore.
    All test are really showing OK....driver install, volume, mute...
    Windows troubleshooter has not given me any help...
    Any idea for something else I should try??

    Have a look at Control Panel > Sounds and confirm there is a device listed at the top of the page (AC97 or SoundMax or similar).
    Tell us what it is
    Check also that the mute box is not ticked.
    This assumes that you have not changed any of the cables to speakers, speaker power is on - you know, the usual obvious stuff?

    Thanks for further help
