I decided to post here because it is a hardware problem i think
To begin with, 1,5 weeks ago i lost a file named hal.dll and a friend of mine told me how to fix it.Everything seemed to work perfect until went to http://www.youtube.com and i couldn't hear any sound.I made a new topic in Windows XP forum and Broni told me that i have to reinstall the audio driver.I don't know if i did something wrong but I deleted SoundMax Integrated Digital HD Audio.But when i download any version of this and It is at the end of the installation i get an error saying that:
Installation failed!

The audio driver do not support your computer hardware.

Note:If you unistalled audio software without restarting your pc,restart it now, then start this setup again.

If anyone could help me i would appreciate.

Note:Anything you want me to post tell me and i'll do it.
Note2:Also my pc find Audio Device on High Definition Audio Bus as unknown device.

Well if you have a branded computer you SHOULD be able to get the driver from them.... if not you could try going to the manufacturer of the motherboard in your system.... you also may want to go into setup on your computer and make sure the audio is either 'on' or on 'auto'


Unfortunately it might no longer function. You could try downloading a live linux cd and see if it picks up the sound... Puppy linux is small and can be downloaded fairly quickly.
