My parents gave me their old laptop and I was doing some serious spring cleaning.
I think I deleted the sound driver in the process, as I can no longer hear audio on anything,
apart from the computer's deep system "beep" and the spinning of the fan.
I tried searching the internet some, but I'm unfamiliar with drivers in general, so
I thought it would be best to ask you first before downloading loads of worthless drivers.

I'm more than happy to post any logs necessary.
Tanks in advance for the help.

Right-click on My Computer and select Properties at the bottom then click on Device Manager and look under Sound if there are any yellow exclamation marks. Also look for any names shown for devices in there that will give you some idea what drivers to search for on Driverguide

As cryptodan say we need more details of you laptop?

We also need to know what version of Windows you are running.
Although this is the 98 forum, sometimes posts for other Windows versions are here by mistake.
In the beginning there was the command line.

The drivers for you lap top should be here: http://www.toshiba.com and under the support page for the lap top.

On the device manager, there is a yellow exclamation point next to PCI Device under the System Devices section. This is the only thing under Device Manager that has a yellow flag on it.

You need the Intel Audio Driver for your lap top.

And your modem driver installation.

I don't see anything directly named that.
I'm here -> http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=DL&os=&category=&moid=1468771&rpn=PSMB0U&modelFilter=M115-S3094&selCategory=2756709&selFamily=1073768663
and When i click Windows xp Sp2/3 and Sound, there are 4 options. I'm currently installing the first one from 9/12/2006.
Is this the correct driver I need?

I tried installing the Intel Chipset: http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/outFrm.jsp?ofId=AskIris&searchString=intel+chipset+inf&x=0&y=0
While running installation it said that my computer already had the chipset and that no installation was necessary.
