Re: Sound problems with DIM3000
I think the phrase your looking for is "needle in a haystack".
You can check all the windows files in one go with system file checker.
Start - run, type sfc /scannow
It will ask for the XP CD if it needs it.
Only problem you might run into is if the version of XP on your CD is SP1 or SP2, and you have a later version (e.g., your CD is SP2 but you've already installed SP3).
My guess is this is more likely to be a registry problem, though. I've collected a fair pile of links, but don't know if you want to go that far. System restore is safer.
