[itdiscuss] Sound and peripherals don't work across Windows user accounts

An acquaintance of mine with Windows XP Home had DSL service installed. After the install, she has no sound and her print device doesn't work...but only in her account. She has two other accounts, and they work as they always did.
Further, she accesses a certain website successfully at her account, and at other internet terminals everywhere. But, when she tries to pull up this page on other user accounts on her machine, the "page cannot be displayed". She is not able to tell me any details (i.e. 404 error, DNS issue).
What, regarding the Device Manager, would change from one account to another? Or, is Windows simply confused? The A T & T tech supposedly did nothing more than install whatever client is used to facilitate getting online, and nothing else but, again, all these problems happened immediately after the install.
Blessings, and thanks for any input you may have.
