I had this once, it may work it costs nothing to try. Wiggle the Jack plugs pull out slightly etc

I had exactly the same problem last night after installing a new TV card driver...:-(

Everything in Device Manager was absolutely spot on but even so my SoundBlaster Live! sound card was not recognised despite a variety of attempts to return the status quo. There were various other problems as well that were equally frustrating.

Only thing that cured it was a Repair of XP Pro and SP2 and subsequent reinstalling of various XP updates since SP2 was launched just over a year ago...:-(((

You may need to reinstall the soundcard drivers, I do not know why this happens but a reinstall sometimes does the trick.
