|Ok, the Sysvol.exe file problem is easily solved. Apparently re-instalations or restores can corrupt or delete this file, so if you're missing it, here's how to get it back:|
Insert your XP installation disk, but exit out of its control panel once it auto plays - r hold down SHIFT to stop it autoplaying altogether.
Go to Start, then open the 'Run' dialog
If your Hard drive is 'C:' and your CD drive is 'D:' type the following (obviously substitute the letters above if your drives are labelled differently!):
"expand d:/i386/syndvol32ex c:/system32/sndvol32.exe"
(there is a space between 'sndvol132ex' and 'c'...)
This will retrive a copy of the sndvol32.exe file from your XP disk, and paste it into the correct windows directory for you. You can now place the volume icon on your task bar, and set your system volume settings.
Except I still have absolutely no sound...
Can anyone please help? I'm stuck.
