Erm, somehow I managed to delete this (don't ask my why - quite embarrasing),
and now I have no sound whatsoever. I don't have the disks for Windows 2000
XP, as I was alreay installed on my laptop. Is there any way I can get this
back onto my computer???

Emma, fortunately, the driver may have been deleted, but the hardware ought
to still be there<g>.
In the case of preinstalled software on laptops, you may want to go to the
website of the laptop manufacturer to get the driver. If you don't find it,
call their support line.

Hi Emma,

First off, this is an XP group. :o)

Secondly, this particular item generally shows under unknown via the Device
Manager.

Thirdly, in most cases this happens after either an upgrade or a repair
install. If neither is the case and you have recently installed an update
that directed toward this area, try a roll-back (using XP terminology).

That said, check with the W2K forums and good luck with it all. Please keep
us posted as this topic isn't seldom covered.

Lastly, this is commonly an ATI instance.
