Click on start> AllPrograms>Acessories > System Tools > System Information. Now System Summary is on the top if you are there scroll down to BIOS at this point you should see the type of bios that you are running (Award Bios) or simmilar, then just beyond that you should see the brand and part number of your motherboard. Write down that info, now go down the left list to Componets click on the plus sign, a list of componets will open. About the 3rd ond down is Sound Device click on that. The first thing that should appear on top of the list is the brand and partnumber for your sound. write that also. Now if you have that go to Google and enter the brand and part number of your sound device. You should be able to locate the software to re-program the sound. If there is no sound device listed Google the brand and part number of your motherboard again look for the motherboards programming in there should be programming for Sound. A good place to look for either is www.drivers.com

I've somehow managed to delete my sound device on my windows vista pc. Where can i download a new one for free and whats the best one to get?


You didn't delete the sound device itself... You deleted the software telling your computer how to run the physical sound device on your motherboard. If you know what the name of the one you have is.. you can go out to the manufacturers website and download it's drivers. If your using a Major brand computer chances are the drivers exist at the computer manufactures website under their support section for the model of computer you have.

    In my Destop system Audio Sound is not coming


    Check the device manager for any conflicts with the drivers. There would be "Other drivers" listed if there was any drivers that were not installed correctly. If there is any listed try right clicking on them and selecting to reinstall drivers.
    To get to the device manager:
    Right click on my computer or Computer > select properties > then click on hardware tab on top then device manager or click on device manager link.
