Good Luck,
thank u for ur input....

Please post a image of the device manager showing the Sound, Video and Game controllers expanded showing the sound card and also the sound card properties (Right click on sound card in Device manager and select properties).

In the Sound card properties go to General tab. Here you should see the device status as "This device is working properly" If you are getting this message, then there could be a hardware problem/

How long your card was working before this happened? Are you getting the initial beep when you start your computer?

Open control panel and start the Sound applet. See whether you have a green check mark on Playback and Recording tabs. If your Speakers in Playback tab shows Disabled, right click on the Speakers and select "Enable". In the same right click menu you will have "Test". Try it and see whether you are getting sound in left speaker first and then in right speaker. Try the "Configure Speakers" and run the wizard. Try the properties of the Speakers (Right Click menu) and try to adjust settings.

Try these tips and post back your findings.

If your internal sound card is not working, another simple solution would be to buy a USB powered speaker set. These speakers will work through the USB port and you don't need to install a PCI sound card. If you are not particular of excellent sound quality, probably you can buy simple USB speakers for a small amount. Otherwise better go with good quality USB speakers.

Uninstall and Reinstall worked for these guys

It seems that this problem has been causing "death & destruction" (OK ... "pain & suffering") for many years.

I found these solutions after a search (one guy was using W2K and the other was using XP).

WARNING: this method of doing things should only be a last resort and make sure you back up all files that you think might get affected. Also this method is like taking out a tank to go after a flea.

First of all I would like to say that I have used this forum at least 2 times before for this issue and it has been a great help, but this time it was of no help, so here is how this all happened.

First after seeing that all these tricks failed I logged into the Administrator and check out the Device Manager to see it there was something wrong there. When I saw that there was nothing wrong there I shut down the PC and started it up to see if it would notice that there was no sound card, that failed.

So I did that last thing I could, I logged on in safe mode and from there I uninstalled everything that did not have the word Windows in it under the Sound, video and game controllers tab. At this point I would like to point out that I am running Win 2k and have no controllers, so if you have any controllers be careful as to what you delete.

After finishing that previous step I restarted the comp and found that Winamp worked again, except for video; the next thing I did was reinstall Winamp and I am now able to view video without any problems.

Mike, that way is TOTALLY wrong. What would it fix, I mean, all you did was disable it, then enable it. The problem would still remain, for one, I tried it, because I have this same problem, and it didnt work.

EDIT : Heres a lovely tip (Or 3 tips in one) from the support center installed on XP Pro. NOTE : Have your installation disc or floppy ON HAND, if you have an nVidia card. (Otherwise, you will recive "Cannot Install This Hardware Problem, blah blah blah, Driver is not intended for this platform, which is BS anyways.)

"Uninstall and then reinstall your device.

To resolve the problem that is causing Device Manager to show an error code for your device, try uninstalling and then reinstalling the device.

To uninstall your device

Open Device Manager.
If the category for your device is not expanded, double-click the category.
Under the category for your device, right-click the device that you want to uninstall, and then click Uninstall.
In the Confirm Device Removal dialog box, click OK.

To open Device Manager, click Start, click Control Panel, click Performance and Maintenance, and then click System. In the System Properties dialog box, click the Hardware tab, and then click Device Manager.
Once you have removed your device, use the Add Hardware Wizard to reinstall it.

To reinstall your device

Close any open programs.
Start the Add Hardware Wizard.
Click Next, and wait for Windows to search for Plug and Play devices. Most new devices are Plug and Play, so you rarely need to go beyond this step.
If no Plug and Play devices are found, a list of devices appears. Click Add a new hardware device, and then click Next.
Click Install the hardware that I manually select from a list, and then click Next.
In the Common hardware types list, click the appropriate device category, and then click Next.
In the Manufacturers list, click the manufacturer of your device; in the Models list, click the model name.

Or, click Have Disk if you have an updated or manufacturer-supplied driver to install for your device.
Click Next, and then follow the wizard's instructions to complete the installation.

To open the Add Hardware Wizard, click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Printers and Other Hardware. Under See Also, click Add Hardware."

OR you could go to System Restore, and go back to yesterday, that is if you have System Restore enabled.
This guy is a genius... I tried so many other methods to resolve my sound issues... This was the only one that worked... For those of you who have those Motherboard soundcards... Just use your motherboard disc when you follow his steps. I hope this guy's info solves most everyone's problems!
