Windows usually has the driver information stored within the windows\system32 directory... you can do one of two things:

1) use the System Restore utility to go back to when your driver was there
2) Reinstall the sound card and Windows can find it on it's own.

If those don't work, you can find the driver on the internet.

I have had success with this camcorder recovery software named asoftech data recovery... Download the program

Please be noted that your camcorder memory card/hard drive should show as a drive letter in your explorer, if not, you need to take out your memory card or hard drive and connect using a card reader, or plug-in to card reader slot if there's any on your computer.

Missing Sound Device


Possibilities are that sound driver might have been corrupted during restore.
So try reinstalling the driver from the mother board's driver cd.
It should do the job for you.

Rarely the worse happens when the mother board's sound card is corrupted, even so you can add an adiitional sound card to mother board and can get back the sound..

But mostly it is the first situation you are facing,.. so reinstalling the sound card driver should do the job for you. It is only the software oriented problem
