  • Hello,

     

    Thank you for your posting!

     

    To avoid ignoring anything, I summarize your questions as below:

    ·         What is Vista?

    ·         Why are the solutions in this forums used for Windows Vista?

    ·         Can the methods made for Vista be used in Windows XP?

    ·         Is there a program that can fix the audio problem in your Windows XP-based computer.

     

    If I misunderstand anything, please feel free to let me know.

     

    Let’s talk about the questions one by one.

     

    What is Windows Vista

     

    Windows Vista is the latest version of Windows operating system used on personal computer, produced by Microsoft.

     

    Windows Vista comes with more exciting features and better performance. I think it’s hard to show all of them here. If you want to know more about Windows Vista, I highly recommend you to visit Windows Vista home page:

    http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/windowsvista/default.mspx

     

     

    About this Forum

     

    Microsoft TechNet Forum for Windows Vista is founded for anyone who wants to know more and share more about Windows Vista.

     

    To make the forum more efficient, only Windows Vista related topics are permitted here. Similarly, other products have their own support resources.

     

    Are Sound Problem Methods for Vista available in XP

     

    It depends.

     

    If the solutions are related to compatibility and other changes in Windows Vista, I don’t think they are available in Windows XP.

     

    If the solutions are for questions that also exist in Windows XP, they may be references for you.

     

    According to your post, you may have trouble in playing sound in Windows XP. If you prefer to look for request in communities, I much recommend you to find the questions in Windows XP communities:

    http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/expertzone/related/default.mspx

     

    Of course, there are many other support resources for Windows XP, you can get their links in Windows XP home page I offered before.

     

    As a Microsoft support, I hope the problem you encounter will be fixed soon. Therefore, finding right methods in right places can help you to solve issues quickly and solidly.

     

     

    Program to Fix Sound Problems

     

    No such program can solve every problem related to audio.

     

    Gradually, many device problems are caused by incorrect drivers. If you just have such problem, proper driver issued by manufacturer may be the program you want.

     

     

    Hope it may help!

  • I had to do an XP Pro parallel restore. Since then I can't get any sound, although have checked out everything I can find in Control Panel>Sound and Audio Devices. Advice appreciated.
