  1. I tried a set of known good speakers without any luck.
    Uninstalled the audio and, upon start-up, windows recognized the sound and reinstalled it.
    I am running a virus scan now. There was no antivirus software.
    No antispyware either. Could the driver files be damaged?
    I am stumped.
    Thanks everyone.

    Hello Sylvia,
    Vista is VERY picky about hardware. I don't know anything about your system... Are you running a sound card or are you using on-board sound? Did your system come with Vista loaded on it, or did you install Vista yourself?
