To revisit my love/hate relationship with my machines, I think I'll take XP Home off the PC and install XP Pro for a little added functionality and security.
Great idea...now my sound card isn't recognized at all. I've installed every driver, run every test, and smacked every piece of hardware I could think of! This is driving me nuts--at least you'll know why if I go over the edge.
Looks like I know what I'll be working on for a while...
