You said it is for the sound card driver for the acer aspire 1500, but I have Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook with Vista Home Premium installed on Acer Notebook. That link states that download is for OS Win 2K/XP . So, would this work on a Vista System? I have an Acer 5100, not 1500. So, is this the download I need for my Acer Aspire Notebook, or should I look else where. Let, me know what to do. Thank you.

You can download the audio and device drivers from the Compaq/HP WEB support/download page. Make sure you select your model laptop and the Windows drivers you require and install them. Click on this link to download the drivers: - www.compaq.com/country/cpq_support.html
It is surprising that Toshiba Notebook does not have a sound device??????
Anyway, please go to control panel and open device manager page. Scroll through and see if there is yellow warning sign on it. If so click on it and see what it says. If it says that no device is installed then you have to go to web site of Toshiba. Under the support section click on drivers and then download the same.
FOR YOUR INFO GO TO FOLLOWING LINK
Either your soundcard driver has gotten corrupted or your soundcard has died. You can find both the driver & info on what card you have at www.dell.com. Click on the support link and you can either input your Dell Service Tag & get exact system info, or you can look it up using the system model #. The driver will be available for download. Try reinstalling an updated driver first. If that still doesn't work check your device manager to see if a soundcard is listed. If it is not then more than likely your card has died and will need to be replaced. Hope this helps.
You'll want to verify that the onboard audio is enabled within the bios first, beyond that the audio codecs for that mobo should be the Realtek AC97 drivers, go to this link to obtain them. You have a choice of two - the AC97 standard codecs or the HD codecs (I would probably try the HD codecs first). I would also be curious as to whether the audio hardware is showing up in the device manager at all (especially if it has the yellow exclamation point next to it).
Based on what you posted about a bios update being the catalyst I would definitely check the onboard audio enabled within the bios option first...
Please post a little more info (especially about what the device manager says) or your results from the reinstall of the AC97 drivers...
Try to check if the audio driver is installed by checking it in device manager.
1. Right click on my computer.
2. click on manage
3. click on Device manager, look for a question mark or an exclamation in the list. if you see other devices with a question mark and that tells you about Audio devices/controller, then the audio driver is not installed.
You may download the drivers online. refer to the link below.
The link posted below will take you to an Acer support page that contains the XP drivers for your Aspire 5610z. Near the bottom of the list are the Realtech Audio drivers that you need to install to get your sound working again. Let us know if you require more guidance?
