    Hey, so recently I was on the control panel uninstalling some old junk and little did I realise I accidentally uninstalled my audio plugin, so I have no sound what so ever. I've tried but can't seem to find a solution. Can you help me out?

    What's the brand name and model name and complete model number of your computer?

    Is it running Windows 7 32-bit or 64-bit?

    If you accidentally uninstalled its audio driver, it needs to be reinstalled.

    ------------------------------------------------------------

    Go to Control Panel - Device Manager.

    Expand the Sound Video And Game Controllers heading.

    What's the exact description listed there?

    All that tells me is that your computer has an Intel Pentium D 3.40 GHz processor and 2 GB of RAM and is running Windows XP Home Edition SP3.

    You need to reply to all of the questions and instructions in post #2 so we can identify your computer and its audio device and locate the audio driver.
