Hi there. I think i deleted something i wasn't supposed to. I have lost my audio.
when trying to use Windows media player i get this error "Cannot playback audio stream: no audio hardware is available, or the hardware is not responding". I have a Soyo MB SY-K7VM333 with intergrated audio and video. I think i may have deleted the audio drivers while deleting other things from my add/remove programs.

Any assistance with this problem would be greatly appriciated.

Thanks in advance.

usually the disk that came with your motherboard should have the drivers to load back on important audio and video files- try poppin in that cd and load back the files see if that helps <_<

Thanks for the quick response. I do have one more concern. This warning popped up when i was installing the audio drivers from the soyo disc.

"Continuing your installation of this software may impair or distabilize the correct operation of your system either immediatly or in the future. Microsoft stongly reccomends that you stop this installation now and contact the hardware vendor for software that has passed windows logo testing."

The words "stongly suggest" scared me a little. Is this something that i need to worry about? I'm using the original disc that came with the MB.

I'm trying not to mess anything else up.

Thanks.

This driver hasn't been certified by Microsoft yet, check soyo.com for an updated driver.

Hi. I check with Soyo and the driver on the cd rom is the latest driver. What does it mean that it's "not certified by microsoft" and do you think i will do harm to my system if i go ahead with the installation?

Probably not, but it's always a good idea to install the latest driver. <_<
