Vista PC lost audio driver

I'm helping someone with a PC running Vista. Someone 'helped' do something with the PC and now there's no Audio or Sound heading in the Device Manager. We installed the audio driver from the manufacturer website but that didn't help. How can we restore audio capability short of restoring the PC?

Thanks,

Both of those are good suggestions.

I'd check BIOS first and if that's good, use the Vista System Restore (rolls back to an earlier point) as discussed here: Using Windows 7 or Vista System Restore - How-To Geek

Good luck.

Thanks, all. They're trying to restore to an earlier point. Let's see how it goes.

Best advice on Vista is to spend the hundred bucks for Windows 7. I've seen too many disks eaten by Vista, there is something fundamentally wrong with that POS. There seems to be some bug in it that results in a corrupt the boot sector if the computer is subject to power failure or intentional crash.
