I fixed it!. I was reading the boards after doing all these test on the sound. After playing with the config file settings and putting sound to 0, it gave me the same error without saying it was loading sound. I started to suspect it was my video drivers. I loaded the latest nvidia drivers and presto, it worked. Sorry for wasting everybody's time on the board.

Not at all! I've been following your thread but I just didn't have any advice for you at this point. I am glad you got it figured out.
See my ramblings and keep up with the latest news on Twitter & Facebook.
