I have seen this problem in other forums but no solution to my problem. All was working fine untill Vista did an automatic update. I have seen on other forums that you just need to update the drivers but in my case the hardware is not seen by the laptop, all the sound devices listed are "Intel (R) High Definition Audio HDMI" Has this audio card been renamed in the update? As the drivers on the recovery disk are Sigmatel?????

 

Any help would be appreciated before I launch this laptop through the window!!!!! LOL

Thanks, from a very frustrated new Dell coustomer
