How do I fix the error


I have several error messages on my computer.

These Error Message happens when my computer starts to load windows.

One error Reads " Cteaxspl has caused an error in Kernel32.Dll Cteaxspl will now Close"

Second Error Reads " CTEAXSPL X"

Third Error Reads " DDraw.dll file cannot start Check the file to determine the problem"

I Also Tried the Clean boot also and nothing has changed and at one time after returning from clean boot I Recieved another error message with these words in them " Ptsnoophos has caused an error in MMSystem.dll"

So if any one could Help I would appreciate it...also another thing is that because of these errors i have no sound on my computer.

Cteaxspl is the Creative Labs "EAX Enhanced" splash screen for the drivers; seems like your driver installation may have been slightly corrupted In order to disable it, go to Start...Programs...Creative...Sound Blaster Audigy...Creative Splash Screen A little blue console will appear near the bottom right You can click the Play button to see the splash screen or just click the adjacent button and remove the check from "Load On Startup"
