Computer running XP Pro with SP2. Installed Creative PCI 128 sound card. All went well with installation, but no sound. Everything OK in device manager, showing it working properly. But, in sounds & Audio devices, everything greyed out as if not installed. Any ideas guys?
Not an onboard sound motherboard.

Have yout tried reinstalling the software again, sometimes creative stuff takes a bit of persuasion. If you have not done so already getting the latest drivers may resolve the problem.

Downloaded latest drivers from creative and have re-installed several times.

Removed sound card and drivers.
Installed another make of card with same results.
If this cannot be cured easily, just going to format and re-install the operating system.
But meantime, still looking for a cure.

Possibly try installing in safe mode.

Already tried that to no avail.

try unchecking "use only default devices".then clicking on your card in the drop down box in "audio",in sounds and audio devices.

They are greyed out aswell.
