| I am having and interesting problem. Ever since I upgraded to XP Pro, my
| audio has stopped working. I have a Santa Cruz audio board and when I I
| went into the Santa Cruz WDM Interface properties, under audio devices /
| Santa Cruz(tm) WDM Interface it reported the following status:
| Status: Driver is enabled but has not been started
| wdmaud.sys is not being loaded by the kernel at bootup. When I look in the
| registry under HKEY_Local_Machine\SYSTEM\ControlSet001, which is the
| control set, under services for wdmaud\enum INITSTARTFAILED is set
| indicating the kernel couldn't start wdmaud.sys. All of the Turtle Beach
| Santa Cruz audio drivers are loaded and started, just wdmaud isn't.
| Is there anything that can keed wdmaud.sys from being loaded? Please
| to NOSPAMhscrevenNOS...@attbi.com remove the NOSPAMS. Thanks.
I think the issue is caused by the old driver of the sound card is not
compatible with the Windows XP.
Let's download and install the new driver at:
I think this can solve the issue.
