I foolishly installed something to check on my drivers and it did say that my audio drivers need updating.....I let it do it but then I was getting no sounds from my computer! I restored it to an earlier date, the sounds were back but now the following error appears when I first turn on the computer....

"The procedure entry point ?LocalizeString@@YA?AVCString@@V1@@Z could not be located in the dynamic link library STLang.dll"

But at the same time I thought I would now see abt updating my drivers via the Device Manager and it let me know that the SigmaTel High Definition Audio CODEC needed updating and proceded to do so (I had the installation disc to the computer in). But after it completed, again there were no sounds from the computer. I did restore it to an earlier date again as I needed to do something on iTunes.

Does anyone know how I can correct this????

you can revert back like you did the first time and uninstall any software that tells you you need a driver. Why are you letting some third party software program tell you what you need? you can look in the device manager and see what sound hardware you really have and go to their web site and get the driver yourself or if you have an off the shelf pc then go to that manufactures web site and see if there are any drivers available.

If your hardware is working correctly then you probably do not need to update your driver....if it ain't broken, then do not try to fix it!
