For the past couple of days my volume icon on my laptop has been dissapearing and reappearing with eavery startup. Sometimes it loads and sometimes it does not. Its a very strange thing. I check the device manager and it says that this Device Cannot Start (Code 10). Ive even uninstalled the drivers for my sound card Interl(r) 82801CA/CAM AC'97 Audio Controller I am currently runnign Windows XP Pro and have Mcafee Anivirus installed. What can be done? Does this mean that my sound card is a gonner? I dont get it, as the driver n all install just fine.......its just the message that I get after that which say the device could nto start. Weird.
