in the "run" line, type "sfc /scannow" and when prompted, insert your windows disk. It may ask for a professional disk if you are using XP home, just ignoer that and stick in YOUR XP DISK.

This utility will scan the windows system files, and ensure they are ok, however any dll's or anything else added to the system folder will not be a part of this scan.

After you do that, un-install ALL DRIVERS, and then re-install..starting with DirectX, then chipset, video, lan, others, then sound.

If this does not fix things, a format is needed.
