    Hello everyone!
    Three days ago I lost the audio on my laptop. I went to device manager and the driver (RealTek HD audio driver) was gone from the list. I reinstalled it but an exclamation mark appeared in front of it with a code 10 error message after installation and obviously no sound. I've tried updating the driver but the same message tells me that the version I have installed is the updated one. I removed it and went to my manufacturer's site to download a compatible driver (found RealTek AC'97_6305 audio driver) but Windows won't let me install it (it can't verify the software's signature or something). I've also tried system restore but no use. I've installed the original driver again using device manager/add legacy software, disable/enable...nothing. Also I get an exclamation mark and a code 10 error on other 2 drivers in network adapters: Microsoft ISATAP and Microsoft Tun Miniport. I've also tried a Microsoft Fix It tool to get the problem solved but to no avail. Also I've moved recently and left the recovery and instalation CDs behind.
    I'm at the end of my wits...please someone help me, I don't know that much about computers and I'm lost:(

    Here's the information for my laptop:

    Thanks Shaii but that only works for HP and Compaq desktop computers, I have a Toshiba laptop, unfortunatly it does not apply to my problem. I appreciate you trying to help me though :)
