No Sound in Safe Mode

I find that my few graphics intensive games run much better in Safe Mode.
Problem is there's no sound.
Anyway to have Safe Node start with sound?

Nope. The entire idea of Safe Mode is that it starts with only a minimal
set of drivers.

if safe mode provides a better graphics experience with your game, perhaps
it is the reduced resolution that is giving you the better response. Try
reducing your resolution to 800x600 (minimal default VGA resolution) and see
if that improves the game.

I ever thought of that!
Switching to a classic theme instead of aero might help also.

Thanks,
James
