In my efforts to clean up a friend's machine of unnecessary programs, I seem to have deleted the device driver for the sound card, and now there is no sound! I have searched relentlessly to try to remedy this, but I just can't figure out how. I have been to Intel's site, but I can't seem to get what I need to fix this. What can I do?

Here is some perhaps relevant info I got using Everest:

This may help. I would bookmark it just in case you need any other drivers.
