I have an onboard AC'97 sound card/codec installed on my computer. A short while ago, after a System restore, exclamation marks came up on "VIA AC'97 PCI Enhanced Audio Device" as well as something having to do with "PCI or Plug and Play Enumerator" (not sure of the name) and then there was no sound. [My modem also had an exclam. mark on it too.] I uninstalled the sound card driver and reinstalled it and the exclamation mark went away. But when I go to: Control Panel/Sounds and Audio Devices, it says "No audio device installed". Also, looking in Device Manager, I dont see "PCI or Plug and Play Enumerator" there. Could you please help.

Thanks in advance.

Do you have another soundcard plugged into your mobo that might be causing problems? Maybe there are some old drivers stuck on your HD. Look around for old drivers on your machine and delete them.

Thanks for all your suggestions but my problem has now been resolved. I did some tinkering around until I was forced to reinstall WindowsXP over the previous version thus repairing the problem (press R when booting from WinXP setup disk).
