    All sound/audio devices gone!!! (nevermind)

    So I was just doing my thing on my computer, everything is fine...I start up XSI and it tells me I have no sound devices installed and it is reverting to [layman]computer beeps[/layman]!! So I open up control panel-.sounds and audio devices and sure enough, no audio device, none to choose from, nothing.

    I have been using USB audio 5.1 headset (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16826160101) with the included software 'EXSOUND Station'. I have been using these since May with no problems.

    So I uninstalled the software, rebooted, then reinstalled...nothing...I searched for new hardware...nothing...I switched what port my USB was plugged into...still nothing!! I have run dry, any and all help would be WONDERFUL :eek::eek::eek:
