I've been trying to help a college buddy fix his PC. Here's the issue:
Using Windows XP, he was having a video problem which caused him to change settings, after which couldn't see the screen.
So without recourse, he restarted WinXp from its last known good config.
That last known good config was before he had installed a sound card, because it was all happening at roughly the same time.
So now, the machine sees the sound card in all device manager areas, but the volume control control panel shows there is "no audio device"
The hardware is there. The software is there. The drivers are updated. I've tried two different soundcards: a SB X-Fi and a Turtle Beach Montego.
Still no audio device.
When he keys in "Del" on setup to enter BIOS, there's no audio device to toggle either.
Can anyone help?
