    Speakers not working? Help? Suggestions?
    my kid just got a new video game called spore. it is an EA game, brand new. i installed it, tried to play it and i got an error message saying that i did not have the latest ActiveX for WindowsXP. i went online and downloaded it from Microsoft. i restarted the computer and it did not make a sound at start up. i thought maybe its was something like a wire unplugged, power cord came out, etc. i checked all hardware connections, i went into the control panel and checked all the volume settings, etc. all were correct and set pretty high. i tested iTunes, nope, no sound. HELP? SUGGESTIONS? The computer itself seems to be acting very glitchy as well?

    Try uninstalling and going back to the last Restore Point in System Restore.

    Got to Start/My Computer/View system information and System Properties opens. You will see System Restore tab at top.

    i found a folder in the programs called "creative" in a sub-folder i found sound "blasterx-fi." under the blasterx-fi there was a sub-folder called "creative-diagnostics." i decided to see what it was. it checked all my sound setting and speakers and "wah-la" it was fixed. Thanks for the suggestions. they are always appreciated! :-)
