I have had to reinstall windows XP I have used the reinstall cd that came with laptop.
Everything is working fine excpet for the sound. I have reinstalled the drivers but no sound, uninstalled the drivers then reinstalled but nothing. I have read on google that the Sigmatel HD Audio can have problems. I have even disabled this sigmatel as it seems it can work without it but nothing. Whenever i try to unistall it keeps re apperaing.
