Toshiba Laptop Sound

While housekeeping my laptop prior to installing Vista (that's another story) I deleted a number of applications from "Add/Delete Programs". One (or three) of them were sound-related .exe files (and I think they were HDAudio files). I then lost all sound.
I continued with the move to Vista, thinking that a complete clean install of Vista would solve the problem. It didn't. I still have no sound. The driver is there, so it is not a driver problem, but Device Manager reports that there is no audio deveice installed.
Yes, it could be a hardware problem, but . . . does anyone have any idea which files (I presume Realtek) would have been deleted and how I should go about re-installing them?

    check under the device manager and see if there is any PCI component highlighted with an "!" point. if there is, update the driver in the internet and it should install on its own. I think you lost the UAA driver. YOu must install this first before you can see the audio device in the device manager.

    if you can give me your exact model of the lapto then i can redirect you to the proper link

Yes you have to reinstall the audio driver, you can find the driver in the cd/dvd together when you purchase the laptop just insert it on your dvd rom and find the driver related to audio then install it

Do a system restore. Click start, all programs, accessories, system tools, system restore. Follow the instructions to restore to a date prior to the install of MPM. You will not lose any new files but you may have to update your antipvirus program.
