there. Then in that window Tools>Direct X diagnostic run tests.

Did you run the DirectX tests as well ? Have you a graphics card fitted, as
well as an onboard system on your Motherboard. If so there will be conflict
and you may need to disable AC 97 sound if that is the one.
Have you checked your switches on laptop,and you have leads connected
correctly.
Also if you post in windowsxp.hardware. I'm sure there was a similar post

What same issue? You've left off what you are replying to, so there is no
context.

Sometimes, they break. Sometimes, the drivers or the registry corrupts.

Check the device manager, reinstall drivers from the lowest (chipset) up.
