I installed Windows XP Home Edition over WinMe on my Dell Dimension 8100 computer a few weeks ago and also downloaded and installed the Santa Cruz XP compatible sound drivers from Dell's site. All worked perfectly, including the sound, until recently. All of a sudden when any sound plays (including with Media Player and CD drive), I can barely hear them. All volume controls are up all the way, nothing is muted, and Device Manager shows no problems whatsoever. I've uninstalled the sound drivers, defragged, and reinstalled them twice to no avail. I've been to every forum I can find, have found others with the same problem and read all replies...but after following all the steps that were advised, the sound is still messed up.
I would SO appreciate any help or ideas on this, as I'm at my wit's end and out of options. :sad:
