    I think my audio driver has been uninstalled by mistake. My laptop is ASUS. OS Windows 7.

    Check the audio chipset status in Device Manager. If it's showing a ! or ? next to the chipset, there is likely an issue.

    If needed, all of the drivers should be available from Asus.

    I think I'm missing VIA Platform Device Manager 1.34.

    That application is for the IDE/SATA drive controller on the motherboard (which controls the HDD and CD/DVD drive). So if it was missing or not working, the computer likely wouldn't be working. In any case, you should be able to update or reinstall that application as well.

    Again, all of the drivers should be available from Asus. Just go to their website / support and search based on the model of the PC.
