Question about Acer Aspire 5100-5022 Notebook
If you are running XP: start > run > type:mmc > ok > a blank console root should appear > file add/remove snap-in... > add > device manager >add > local comp > finish > close > ok > now the console root should have the device manager in it. open the device manager by double clicking it. scroll down until you find "sound, video and game controllers' then if there is no realtek.... click on the icon on the task bar that looks like a computer with a magnifying glass. it will rescan your computer for any driver, chipset changes and Plug and Play. etc a blank audio device should appera or the realtek device should appear. it will either reload itself and you will need to reboot or right click it and select properties ant then select the "driver" tab in the new window that will come up. try "roll back driver" and if this does not work select update driver and follow the wizard, you said you did not have the disk but the driver is still stored locally so don't panic.
