Sounds to me like your sander is a fatality in the accident. Don't try to fix it as it is a disposable tool. You would run the risk of ruining any item you chose to sand. Balance is ever so important to a sander and the accident destroyed that balance!

I accidently uninstalled a program and now no sound.

Have you tried doing a restore from a previous day like the day before or somewhere close when you know you last had sound? or you may need to install drivers if you removed some. Try a restore to an earlier time then if that doesn't work come back here and post your speaker model and number I'll got into this further. Also might want to do a DXDIAG on your system and test the sound as well. to do this go into Start> Run type dxdiag press enter and let it do it's thing then goto sound at top and test and see if you hear anything if not u need drivers if you do may need to do restore also check your device manager and look for sound devices and check that they are ok and no ? marks by anything. If this helps you in any way please Rate thanks :) Good Luck Mike..
