Total loss of sound/volume control
I have windows ME. Yesterday, sound completely gone. it's not showing volume gone into start>settings>control panel>sounds and multimedia and in 'audio' it states NO playback devices or recording devices. My volume knob on keyboard and mute button do nothing. Does anyone know how to resolve?

Your device manager should look like this: http://www.computerhope.com/device.gif Click the + to the left of sound, video and game controllers to view the sound card you have installed. You can right-click the sound card and uninstall it. If you have no sound card then it is faulty, since Windows should detect it and try to load drivers for it.
It is the found new hardware wizard and you use the "have disk" option then point it to the inf directory. What does the device manager look like now? If there are question marks then use the reinstall driver option and use the "have disk" and point to the inf folder. There should not be 5 game ports: that is for sure. If there are then remove them and follow the previous instructions.
