What problem, Jeebus? Since you posted from some web access (maybe one
of those so-called messageboards that pretends to be a tech site but
really is just sucking posts off Usenet), I don't have any of your
previous question. First, learn to use a newsreader (information to
help you is below) and then come back and explain the problem. Make
sure you give a full description of your hardware, the problem, if your
gameport ever worked, what changed, what troubleshooting steps you've
already taken, etc. - anything that will help people who can't see your
machine help solve your problem.

Without knowing anything more, if you are having problems with your
gameport:

1. Reinstall your sound card drivers. Get drivers from either the device
mftr.'s website or if you have an OEM machine (HP, Dell, Sony, etc.)
from the OEM's website for your specific model machine.

2. There may be a physical problem with the sound card itself. Either
try the card in another machine and test or swap it for a known-working
sound card in your machine and test.

Here's information on Usenet and using a newsreader:

Gameport drivers are on there way out! Only available drivers can be found
to be built into XP itself.

If you still can not get the drivers to work, consider replacing the
gameport device with a USB version!
