High Definition Audio Driver Package KB835221 RRS feed

  • Question

  •  My computer (Dell XPS 400 Windows XP) completely crashed due to a very nasty virus and everything was wiped out. I am fairly computer knowledgable but could not fix it. I had all the applications disc's but my computer couldn't even read them. I finally had to call a service repair company. The guy that came out, I think he put this on my computer, I don't remember seeing it before and now the sound on my computer doesn't work and even he couldn't figure out why. My computer came with SoundBlaster 24 and I have check and all the defaults are set to this. I hear crackling in my speakers and before the virus they worked just fine. Is this application need to be on my computer or is it the problem? Should I take it off or does someone know how I can fix my sound? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

  • You have windows messenger or windows live messenger loaded. Open up windows media player and turn off all the plugins to this program..

    Do not open up media player whilst you are onnected to the net..It is sending your sound to your messenger friends but not your own sound card.. It's a weird one , but there you go.. lol
