XP Help Required

Is there anyone around here who would know how to solve this problem?

I just changed the registration key of XP (I had a temporaray one that expired just recently and now I bought an official, final key) but since I changed it the volume setting icon and the active internet connection icons wouldn't show up on the taskbar. Since the volume setter of my speakers is broke I can't set the volume quickly either by software or hardware. The volume icon can be switched on in the settings -> audio devices sound and voice options, but wouldn't stay there the next startup. The internet connection wouldn't show up even if I check the box in the connections -> properties tab. I can't disconnect only by logging off XP. Help, Please.

Why not try to reinstall windows? but, just install it over the current copy so your main settings and registry are saved.

Would I lose installed programs and/or Hard Drive content? PS.: I have a split OS, on drive C: I have Me, and on D: I have XP, would it still work without messing everything up?

You might need to reinstall programs which rely on registry settings such as MS Office and perhaps some games, but other than that, nothing should be swipped.

Your best bet would be to copy all your important files from your windows drive to another partition, and then do a reinstall. You may need to reinstall any programs on your windows hard drive, if hey rely on registry settings, like MSOffice.

if something is really buggered up, then backup everything and do a complete reinstall, ie, a format install.
