Dimension 8400- No sound

  • Hi, due to a virus of some sort I think I accidently deleted my driver for my integrated sound system for my Dimension 8400. In my Device Manager tab, it says there is no device available, but I know I have one because it is built in and it was working yesterday. I'm looking for the download of a driver for my computer, could anyone link me to a download?

    Thanks very much, Keelio

  • I tried downloading SB Audigy 2 which was what I had assumed was in the integrated system after reading up on it and when I tried to install the driver it said

    "Setup is unable to find a supported product on your system. Please make sure you installed the product correctly. Setup will now exit."

    I don't know what the problem is, it's supposed to be an integrated system, I don't know how it wouldnt be installed correctly when it was working just the other day, I can't system restore because I had to turn it off to delete a virus that was on my computer. Can anyone help?
  • heres a everest system report if you would need it..

    As you have intergrated audio these are the sound drivers that you need. Soundblaster audilogy 2 is a stand alone sound card and it appears that is not what is on your system...
