Hi. First of all, thanks for reading this. I will try to give as much information as is possible. Now, onto the problem at hand.
Today, I installed Windows XP Professional. During installation, I got errors stating that swe_enum.sys, srgb.icm, and tshoot.dll were unreadable from the CD. I chose to skip the files and continue with the installation.
Once installation was finished, I attempted to play an MP3 in Winamp from one of my backup CDs, and received an error that I needed to install the proper drivers.
So, I went to Windows Update and downloaded the driver update there. After installation, I restarted and it gave me a message in the system tray saying that new hardware titled Creative SB Live! (WDM) was found and was being installed. So, I went back to Winamp and tried to play another mp3 (and also a wav file). Again, I got the same error.
Next, I went to Creative's website and got their XP Update from there. After installation, I again restarted. I was unable to get any sound as I got an error everytime I tried.
After searching the internet, I found this page (http://www.tek-tips.com/gviewthread.cfm/lev2/66/lev3/68/pid/750/qid/241724) which looked like it may be of some assistance. I tried all the remedies on there but to no avail.
By the way, I switched my sound card to a different PCI slot and still got no results.
Oh, and one more thing; I was running the Home Edition of XP before installing Professional and my card worked fine immediately after installation.
Any help at all would be appreciated. Thank you for your time.
