My link was cut off in my last post for some reason. Here it is again. Hopefully this one works.

If you go to the Software Tab you will see that a lot of your software has not been updated since 2006 including Java SE Runtime Environment 6 (126.96.36.199) Sun Microsystems, Inc. 11/30/06 and this will cause you problems, update your java now before moving on, you have a fair amount of updating to do as well as the recommended suggested fixes which I will help you with once everything is updated.
You can download 2 drivers a day for free from http://www.innovativ....com/drivermax/

I did, however, somehow manage to restore sound to my system. I was trying to figure out how to find the driver for the Texas Instruments thing you asked me to uninstall and reinstall the driver for. From Control Panel, I went to "change", thinking maybe I could find more information that way. It installed something and suddenly the sound started working, even after a reboot. So it appears my initial problem is fixed!
Is it hard to update things? I'm not opposed, just not sure what I am doing.

I am pleased that your sound is working correctly now, if you cannot say what you did I also cannot guess either, you may have simply loaded the driver, it is important that you know in case the issue happens again, do not change anything but go to Start, Control Panel, Device Manager, Sound/video and game controllers, click on the + sign and let us know what is listed!
For future reference it is important to keep software up to date and Java in particular as it is an important part of Flashplayer, video in general and 3D affects etc.
