Hi there, I think that I deleted my sound card. Can someone help me please?
My computer is HP Pavilion g6
When I go to the Device Manager it says that I have IDT High Definition Audio CODEC and Intel ® Display Audio underSound, video, and game controllers
Does it look like I am missing a file?
Also, I have gone to the Unknown Device Identifier 8.00 but there is a long list of things and I don't know what would be helpful to know in this situation. Except maybe Realtek PCIE CardReader.
I have already tried to restore my system but that did not work (although, it only went back to 2/9/2012.
I have also recently downloaded AVG...not sure if that means anything.
Thanks in advance for any help!

in device manager is there anything with a yellow exclamation?

try running a windows update, many of the windows updates includes sound controllers

you can also try using the windows 7 sound troubleshooter.

Click Start and then click Control Panel .
Under System and Security , click Find and fix problems .
The Troubleshoot computer problems page opens. Under Hardware and Sound , click Troubleshoot audio playback.
The Playing audio troubleshooting page displays. Click Next to continue.
Wait while the troubleshooter checks the computer for problems.
If multiple audio devices are connected, select the device you want to troubleshoot, such as speakers. Then click Next .
Wait while the troubleshooter detects problems and makes changes.
