Question about PC Desktops
No problem - that's what you have us for :)
It's possible that if you updated to Windows Service Pack 3, you might have lost the driver. In the past 2 weeks, I've seen more problems caused by a Windows Service Pack!
Go into your Control Panel, under Add/Remove Programs and scroll all the way down to the bottom. Find the Service Pack that you just installed and remove it. Reboot.
Check for your audio device. If still not there, reinstall the Service Pack again (only if you feel it's necessary) then go the computer manufacturer's website and download the audio device driver. I'm surprised that after a reboot, you're not prompted to "install new hardware". Are you seeing anything like that when you reboot?
Go into Device Manager as well (Control Panel, System) and look under "Sound and Video" and see if you have any audio devices installed ...or if there are any exclamations or "splats" next to anything.
Send me an update when you can :)
