No Sound Device warning on Acer 5100

Hi, I have an Acer 5100 laptop running on XP home, and I was ckleaning some unwanted programs off the system and think I might have corrupted the driver somehow??? Anyway now I have no sound, just a warning 'no sound device'. I can find Realtek in the program files, and it has Installshield folder with lots of files in this, but I can't get any of them to work. Please help am desperate.

No Sound from Acer 5100 : Volume tab is disabled


I am worried that there is a problem with the sound card on your motherboard. If it has worked in the past and then suddenly disappeared, usually it is because the computer can no longer locate your sound card. It will not load a driver for a device that no longer exists. Since you have already done most of the troubleshooting steps, it is time to think about replacing your motherboard. Good luck

Hi

This should be correct solutions as well as risky..

Go to start menu and click on run.. A run window opens.. U type in that window that msconfig. Another window opens.. U select the start up tab.. There u can find some programs which are run at start up.. Many are unwanted for home use.. But don't touch others because u touch others means it may be a os file.. So u disable only the compaq program.. U can easily find that program from that.. Please don' t touch others.. After disabling restart ur system then that program will not run at startup..
After this restarting windows give a warning message that the system configuration settings changed.. There u can find the option that don't show this message again when start up.. U enable that and give ok.. I think now the problem is solved for u..
