To all whom it may concern, here is a copy of an email I posted to 2management " just now. it may be helpful to some of you re having accidentally deleted your sound driver.
> I want to thank Jedi Master and all who contributed to the thread on Multimedia Audio Controller Drivers - i.e. no sound. It is a very old thread but, by reading through it, I got my sound back.
> I followed Jedi's instructions re going to Device Manager and clicking on "update the driver". As it happened I discovered, at the same time, that I had a disk which came with my PC (Windows XP) which was labelled Intel Express Installer CD. It has a list which included SoundMAX 4 XL. I popped it on and clicked "update driver", as above.
> Then, Bob's your Uncle, it took it from there. The sound did not come back until after I had restarted my computer.
> Many thanks again.

My message is that many of us don't realise we have the disk in our set-up pack that came with the computer. Usually we have these disks hidden away somewhere and long forgotten. I just happened to find mine at the same time as I read Jedi's advice re going into "device manager" and taking it from there. The two - Jedi's advice and the disk - combined perfectly and worked like a dream. Hope this helps.
