    No audio device


    I have managed to solve it anyway as I found out that the hardware was
    still there but needed re-installing again. I did this and now the sound
    has come back. I shall be a bit more careful next time I upgrade. Thanks
    for your help anyway

    While those are Intel chipsets, you will see while looking at the Intel site

    that they DO NOT provide the audio drivers.

    Download and run Everest Home (it is free):

    Once you download it, click on it and let it install and then run it from the icon on your desktop and then click on 'Computer' then on 'Summary', then go to the VERY top of the screen and click on 'report', then 'quick report-summary' and then 'plain text' and save it then go to C:/programs/lavalys and open that folder then open Everest Home sub-folder and then reports sub-folder and click on the report which will open it in a text editor and then use your mouse to highlight ALL the debug stuff at the bottom of the report and delete it and then save that file again and then copy and paste it to here.

    I would suggest you copy that driver package still zipped if possible to a cd or Zip drive and lable it and put it with your Install disks somewhere safe.

    You never know when hardware will become 'unsupported'.
