No Sound after upgrad to XP Pro SP2

Specs: Windows XP Professional,, Intel Pentium 4A, 2400 MH

I recently upgraded from XP Home (sp1) to XP Pro (sp2) which seems to have messed up my computer. So I had to reformat my hard drive, and had to reinstall everything... the SB audigy sound card did not work. I am not sure if it is the driver or the device itself. In the Control Panels -> Sounds and Audio Devices, the Volume tab is all greyed out... and in the Device Manager, I do not see the detection of the sound card itself in Sounds and Audio Devices.

I have tried replugging the sound card into another PCI, but it still did not work, and reinstalling the drivers (which I got online from your site), did not work since it said that I do not have the device installed. Does XP Pro SP2 have something to do with this model not working on my computer?

Maybe this model of Creative SB Audigy (Model SB0090) is not supported by Windows XP Professional SP2. If anyone knows anything about this, please let me know. Thanks.

Okay, I fixed this myself. If anyone is curious, I went to www.creative.com. I had been there before and couldn't find the drivers. But this time, instead of using the newest drivers, I scrolled down on the list of drivers and tried something that might look "right"... I ended up with:

31. Audigy Web Update - Audigy Drivers (13.50 MB)

link is at:

and this fixed my issue. Thank goodness!
