Right. So I've just about had it with this darned laptop. I bought it a few months ago, and the issue isn't manufacturer error or store error or anything. It's my own fault, but I desperately want it fixed.

So last night, I was searching around my laptop looking for stuff to delete to clear space for gaming, and I couldn't find what was taking all the space up (65.3gb was being taken by Garry's Mod mods, but didn't realise at the time) so I decided just to delete things and see if it helped. I googled whether deleting "Realtek HD Audio Driver" by Realtek Superconductor Corp (i think) which was over 200mb would give me a leg up, and being an idiot I didn't think it would disable the audio card, so I deleted it as people were saying "YEAH GO FOR IT!" and stuff.

So I deleted it. And then only after that did I find out what was taking all the space up, so I sorted that and tried to reinstall the audio driver, but and it says it's been installed properly but can't run. I have no clue how to get it to work and it's really REALLY annoying me :'(

I'm using a HP Pavilion Laptop on Windows 10. If any other information is required and/or screenshots, etc. Let me know. Please help me solve this asap. I know sound isn't a necessary thing, but it certainly helps...

EDIT#1: If this is in the wrong section of the forum/category, moderators feel free to move it, as I only just joined this forum to solve this issue as nothing I try works, and I just slapped it in here as I'm on Win10. Sorry.

The easiest way to fix this is to simply restore to a date prior to your messing with it. Should take all of 5min or so.
BTW laptops are not really designed for gaming. The exception is a purpose designed gaming laptop like an asus or a dell/alienware.
