I recently got a new computer, its a NEC Versa P570.
Its supposed to come with vista but i had it downgraded to windows XP.
I accidentally installed the vista drivers and then installed XP drivers over them. everything works fine exept that i cannot use my sound, my brother has the same computer and he can see the audio manager icon in the taskbar, i cannot even see that.
Every time i try to start my computer up i also get Windows Hardware Manager, or whatever it is, saying that it has deteced new hardware and it starts installing MEDIA but cannot find the file and i dont have the disk.
I am completely lost as to what to do for my and my brothers computer because i cannot even see the audio manager and he cannot actually get sound to come out of his speakers!
if anyone can help i would really like to hear what you have to say
EDIT: by the way i have installed the latest drivers that i can find but if anyone knows where the latest can be found
My specs for sound are:
Sound Chip: Realtek
Channel: 7.1 + 2channel High Definition Audio Codec
Integrated Speakers: Internal speakers (1W x 2)
MIC: Internal Microphone
