I had some trouble last week with my laptop failing to recognise the system speakers. I tries reloading the drivers, testing volume options etc

In the Hardware Devices section i have notices a yellow exclamation mark next to the Microsoft WinMM WDM Audio Compatability Driver. Double Clicking on this brings:

'A driver (service) for this device has been disabled. An alternate driver may be providing this functionality. (Code 32)

Click Troubleshoot to start the troubleshooter for this device.

Under the system devices, speakers, no driver is detected. I have the system recovery CD and a CD with the original drivers.

Apart from uninstalling it and re installing it, Any further thoughts. I've tried it 3 times

Thanks
