    How do I get a free audio download and/or update my drivers so what I lost in the audio device/sound is restored without having to buy a program?

    Hi robbiefast, and welcome to TSG.

    If the audio controller is built into the motherboard, check to see if the computer or motherboard manufacturer has a web site that will allow you to download the latest Vista compatible drivers. It may also have specific instructions on how to use the downloaded files to install the drivers.

    thanks for your ideas. when i search for free driver downloads i inevitably end up with a box telling me i have to buy something (even though my search starts with a 'free download' tag to it). i somehow lost the audio device to my Acer laptop Vista Windows and am simply trying to restore that. i did go to Acer and had the same (above described) happen.....frustrating!
