  • Windows won't recognize cd and sound card

    I have a computer running Windows XP where the CD drive and Sound Card aren't recognized. The CD drive shows up in CMOS and both CD drive and Sound Card are in Device Manager but with Exclamation points next to them. When I look at properties, Windows states "A driver (service) for this device has been disabled. An alternate driver may be providing this functionality. (Code 32)." When I look in My Computer, the CD drive is not showing up at all. Does anyone know a fix to this?

    Code 32
    A driver (service) for this device has been disabled. An alternate driver may be providing this functionality. (Code 32)
    Recommended resolution

    The start type for this driver is set to disabled in the registry. Uninstall the driver, and then click Scan for hardware changes to reinstall or upgrade the driver.

    On the General Properties tab of the device, click Troubleshoot to start the Troubleshooting Wizard. If the driver is required, and if reinstalling or upgrading does not work, change the start type in the registry using Registry Editor.


    or maybe this?
