We had a power outage this a.m. while I was on PC and it shut off and restarted by itself. It did not do a "Scan Disk" as my W98Se did when this happened so I ran Scan Disk and restarted PC. There wasn't any sound. I checked Sounds, & Audio in the Control Panel and everything is greyed out and says "No Audio Device". I believe it is AC97, but it isn't listed in Device Manager. I did a system restore to yesterday and it didn't resolve the problem. I checked HP's web site for drivers and AC97, but nothing is listed. Before I call HP Support, can anyone here help me get my sound back? Sorry, but I trust you folks more than some of the techs at HP. Several bad experiences.
