|first problem i have is i just installed a new SB x-fi sound card, but can't get any sound.|
in device manager it shows as enabled and working, but on the volume icon in the taskbar it says there is no audio device installed.
have the latest drivers downloaded & old sound card removed.
next problem is when i boot, i get a screen saying "no boot device recognised....." the only way to boot is by pressing F8 and manually selecting the drive with the boot sector. in bios its already set to have that drive as first boot device.
another thing is, the boot problem happened when i installed the sound card, so they're obviously linked in some way
actually...another thing you could hopefully help me on is, some programs close immediately when i try to run them, the message i get is "a problem caused the program to stop working correctly. please close the program" and thats it, no error codes or anything like that, and it only happens to 5 or 6 programs, one of which is a game that was working up until last week
