Do you know how to do command line check for bootcfg and windows installs? Also typing "msconfig" in the Run bar will show boot script. If you put the new Windows on a separate partition then you can just delete that. Steve  I am running out for a quick f2f job but will return shortly:)

Downloaded xp 2nd vrsion no sound


Please install the sound card (audio) driver. You need the following information to download the drivers from the internet if you do nothave it on disk.
(1)Your Operating System (In your case its Windows XP SP2 it does not necessarily mean version)
(2)The hardware manufacturer of your device (in your case its the sound card)
(3)The model of the sound card
Take all this information and Google it or go to the Vendor's website.

Have Windows XP, Home Edition. Cannot install Service Patch 3,


Beethoven 9 is not part of the service pack. Go to microsoft and download the service pack as is. If you don't have a fully registeredwindows program, you will have problems until you register it. I've downloaded all service packs and updates for the past 7 years on different levels of windows without any problems. You must have them registered to prove you have an authentic purchased program, not something copied from someone elses setup disks.

Hi mate...


Hi there. It sounds like the XP you have installed doesn't have the correct/updated driver for your sound card. Try installing the most current Sound driver from the manufacturer's website. It would also be a very good idea to download XP Service Pack 3 from Microsoft, as this will have added support and drivers in the database.

Let me know if it works

Thank you

Tim
