uninstalled some things and now have no AUDIO DEVICE

by lebronjames. / April 4, 2008 6:22 AM PDT


on little uninstalling tirade, I happened to delete something that I wasn't supposed to


I now have no audio device and can't hear any music/videos

can I get this audio device back by reinstalling it?

or is there something more complex that needs to be done?

I have a Dell XPS M140 and i'm currently googling for some solutions but any outside insight WILL help

I don't think it has to do with the order that I installed the drivers because audio was working fine before I installed some things

I will download and reinstall those things in the order you gave me though
