Sigma Tel Audio Problem

I have installed the sigma tel audio drivers from the dell download site. When I am done downloading it the sound it good but when I turn off the computer for a bit and turn it back on there is no sound. What could be the problem? I have downloaded it at least a half a dozen times and it does the same thing. The computer has XP media center 2005. What could be the problem?
Thank You

    I saved it once but it went into my documents. Maybe I will try it again and see if I can save it to my HD? Is there a special way to save it to the HD?

    Thank You. I will give it a try then shut it down till tomorrow and let you know if it is still working. Aslo I will go to and run the tool. You computer guys are awesome.

    I have already went into msconfig and unchecked a lot of junk! I know that can cause your computer to be slow when there are a lot of programs running on start up.

    I am going to fire up my laptop and see if the it is OK? If not I will down load the drive from a site besides dell.

    Thank You again for the help.
