Just had my replaced motherboard replaced, now I have no sound. Any ideas? What do I need to download? I have 2 cheap HK speakers to connect. Also, there is a red "X" in Device Manger next to "Network Adapters". Does this have anything to do with it and what is it? Thanks much. Here is my Belarc adviser profile:

Whic driver is this? Is it a sound driver? It says I have to install it from Devise Manager. How exactly do I do that? Thanks.

What motherboard did you install?
Does it have onboard sound? If it does, then you sound have a drivers disk that you can it from.

If not, then what sound card do you have?
