The system "lost" its sound card driver (Realtek). Upon re0installing

system, what can be done? Computer is an Acer lap-top about 2 years

or if that doesn't work,

2. Also from the Vista DVD, try a System Restore to before the troubles with
the sound card happened. If you only have a "restore disk", see:
