    i have a slight problem here. a little while ago i believe i changed my driver(?) to standard PC ( so that I could use a program not compatable with windows xp? ) and now my sound does not work. i also don't have the installation discs, and i don't have a verifiable windows because i had a computer repair guy uninstall/reinstall my entire computer using his own discs so i seemingly can't reinstall my sound drivers. any help would be greatly appreciated :(

    If you check device manager do you get any "!" under the audio tree? If you do then try right clicking the main driver and click uninstall. Then reboot the pc and allow windows to install the drivers. If that does not work, try to run system restore to go back to when the drivers worked properly.

    Your sound drivers wouldn't have been on the windows disc anyway, they are usually on the motherboard CD if you have that. If not go to your motherboard manufacturer's website to download the sound drivers for your model mb from there.
    This assumes that your sound is intergrated into the motherboard. If you have added a separate sound card go to the manufacturer's site of that for it's drivers.
