After I upgraded to xp from windows ME I no longer have any sound. Other than ungrading I made no other changes. My soundcard is Aureal Vortex 8810. In device manager it is listed as Aureal Vortex 8810 (WDM). The device is enabled and everywhere I check it says that the device is working properly (i.e. in device manager right click on Aureal Vortex, select properties). Volume control sliders are fine and no mute boxes are checked.
When I went to windows update I supposedly downloaded and installed an updated driver.
What do I do? Is it possible to completely remove all the sound card drivers and do a reinstall? If so how? Any and all advice would be helpful.
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
