Is your machine set to update automatically? If so, perhaps Microsoft has sent out a driver update that's incompatible with your particular setup, which isn't a 'new' issue.
Rather than trying to simply load the driver, try the 'rollback driver' option for your sound hardware. If this works, go to Microsoft Update, select the 'custom' option, and wait for it to find all the updates for your system. Find the one in the list that pertains to your sound hardware, and click on the little + sign next to the update; Select "do not show this update again" optino, and close the session. This SHOULD prevent your machine from downloading any further updates to sound hardware, and your sound should work.

My Vista PC stopped seeing my SD, CF, etc. drives. It still sees my blueray. All are built in. This happened before and I fixed it by downloading new drivers from MS, but I can't find the drivers now.


I would try uninstalling the device(s) using Device Manager and immediately rebooting the PC. Upon reboot, Vista will detect the hardware and install all their drivers.
Good luck!
