Do you perchance have a VIA chipset for your motherboard as this is the one of the things that causes problems with the aureal vortex 2 (i am using one and it works fine but i have an intel chipset) - aureal sold up a while ago - i think nvidia bought them.

i did have one problem when i installed xp in that the audio codecs did not install correctly so i had no systems sounds however after reinstalling xp again over the top this then reinstalled the codecs (uninstalling the sound devices and then readding did not solve the problem)

Under sound devices you should have audio codecs, the aureal vortex 8830 (WDM), aureal vortex game port two legacy devices, video codecs and a media control - if these arent all there then it may be that sound did not even install properly so reinstall xp over the top.

Otherwise if you do have a via chipset etc then here is a link that may help out http://www.chandler-bing.ic24.net/vortexfix.htm
