go here...enter your service tag number...get your chipset driver and install it first...I highly recommend that once your at the site you grab all the drivers for your computer...download and burn them to a cd...just in case somewhere down the road you need to reinstall a driver you will have any you may need...
no joy...
install the audio driver...
and for any other drivers that the device manager shows is missing...click on any with yellow ! or ? mark...then click on action...update driver...then point it to the cd drive with all your drivers
