    I recently installed XP professional. Most things went fine, except that i now do not have any sound. My sound card is a C-Media CMI87378/C3DX. XP says that everything is installed properely, the drivers i am using are 'digitally signed'. It should work, but unfortunately it doesnt. i have no sound playing (i have checked the volume control etc etc). the only time i get what could be called sound is when i try to play something in media player 8. i get a very annoying clicking noise coming out of my speakers which can be controlled by the volume control thing, and doesnt stop enless i log off or turn off my computer. Today i formatted, and installed xp fresh (i had previously upgraded from win98se). the problem still exists, which is very annoying. i need sound on my pc because i use it for music and the silence is really getting to me. could anyone help me or will i be forced to downgrade to 98se which i would prefer not to as i like the rest of the features in xp.

    cheers, Aaron

    So are the drivers you have the newest from your manufacturer? since if XP is reporting no problems or device conflicts i'm willing to guess it's a driver problem...best you could do is contact manufactuere or such, sorry man..but I might be wrong
