If anyone could tell me what other options i have to find out what type of sound card i have in my IBM 600E laptop i would greatly appreciate it... I have been trying to get the sound working since we installed the Windows XP Professional on it.... i have exhausted all the knowledge base that xp gives you, i've checked the IBM site and went throught all their "tweeks" for xp, and still when i go to the control panel and check the sound.... it says there's no audio. I know it has one because it use to work... when i go into the device manager it show's 2 yellow !marks.
one under Ports(COM & LPT) Communications port Com1 and the second yellow! is under Sound,video and game controllers...Crystal WDM Audio Codec. When i check the properties on the Crystal WDM Audio Codec it tells me that the device can not start (Code 10) what ever that means.... and when i check the properties under the ports it tells me Windows has stopped the device because it has reported problems (code 43). I've tried trouble shooting both things and im still without sound. I also added the line CStateFlags.reg to the ?.. which i was informed that would help me... all that did was allow the laptop to make a beep when it reboots and when i push the Fn key and the pgup or pgdn keys.... i found that information on the IBM TP General Windows XP Supplement Files page.
I surley hope someone can help me....
ANY info would be greatly appreciated
