Computer crashed due to a very large and nasty virus, so I reformatted the hard drive, deleted all partitions to force the Windows install disk to repartition (that way the virus couldn't be hiding in the partitions!) and Windows reinstalled. That was fine.
Went to Control Panel, couldn't find any Multimedia controls. Looked in Device Manager/Other Devices (big yellow question mark) and all the multimedia devices had yellow exclamation marks on them. Clicked on them, they said they didn't have drivers.
Why? I installed XP from a GENUINE MICROSOFT DISK, covered with holograms, verified by Microsoft online, the lot. Why wouldn't it have its multimedia drivers on its disk?
And where do I get them from? I'm writing music, want to record what I write as soundfiles and I can't make any of the multimedia settings work because of lack of drivers.
I've installed SP2, gone to the Microsoft Website to look for drivers, no joy, or I'm looking in the wrong place (could well be the latter!)
