hey guys, this is the first time i have had to ask anybody else for help with XP... but i'm stumped. I have had XP working for ages, no problems... but recently, things started just disappearing. My soundcard is installed and shows up in the device list, but all the drivers and stuff for it just fail when i try and use it. I ran Creative Diagnostics and it verified for me that everything but the actual card was failing. Then, my modem failed and i couldn't get on the net... so i decided to reinstall XP... then, whilst installing... it gave me the ol' BSOD and said that ctoss2k.sys or something similar to that had stopped responding or something... god i'm so confused. Anybody help?
