OK, let me start by saying my computer has totally went crazy on me...first question I have is if you reinstall Windows (XP) would the registry be unchanged? OK another problem I have is that my CD-RW drive still doesnt work (look for my post in optical storage forums) & now my speakers nor my mic. work...please help...I've been working on this stuff for DAYS now....

hi friend! What is your exact problem with Windows XP? The registry when updating windows resets, so you have to re-isntall most software

Hi, first of all I want to say thanks for even trying to address this issue, ok here's the problem, my CD-RW drive doesnt work (refer to optical storage, CD-RW forum my post is there) & I reinstalled windows TWICE (lol) & still no luck, my speakers & mic doesnt work now, I've tried everything...The plug & play feature worked before for the speakers & also the CD-RW drive when I reinstalled so I have no idea how to fix it now...I've went thru most troubleshooters with microsoft & some other sites...is it possible that something is wrong with my motherboard or sound card...how bout my CD-RW drive...is it retired? I've only had it for a year & burnt less than 200 CD's on it...so is it possible it could be fried already? It worked perfectly up until I got a free trial of Alcohol 120...downloaded it, installed it, & that's when my CD-RW drive went out. I just had burnt a CD on it the day before, worked perfectly so I have no idea what it is...I even got an updated firmware for it on the Lite-On site (my CD-RW drive is a Lite-On SOHR-5238S) & it didnt help...all the drive does is the light blinks twice & then when I go to my computer & look to see if it had recognized the disc it shows me that there isnt a disc in the drive but when I double-click on the drive it brings up an empty folder (doesnt it supposed to say insert a disc?)
if you need anymore info please let me know...& I apologize for this lengthy post
