  1. alright

    first off, i have a Linux (Fedora Core 4) partition


    a Windows XP Home partition

    on Linux, my sound works perfectly, didnt have to install anything to make it work.

    and i log into my newly reinstalled windows

    and everytime i do anything that might require a sound


    from my actual computer.

    so its not my hardware.. what do i do?

    EDIT: and ive tried installing CMedia Drivers, which is what windows installed for me

    Are all the sound devices recognized in the Device Manager ?

    Does anything have a yellow exclamation mark against it ?

    Is the C Media device set as the preferred device in the Sounds and Audio control panel ?

    Try uninstalling/remove all sound devices in the Device Manager,and then restarting.
    If you have a CD with the drivers,use that to re-install.
