So basically i was on the 'add/uninstall programs' just clearing up unwanted programs and i came across the name 'realtek' and assumed that it was some worthless program so i uninstalled it without thinking and next thing you know i have no sound. When i go to the device manager and under 'others' it has a big yellow question mark and a small exclamation mark next to the name 'Audio device on high definition audio bus' and when i go to update driver it scans using the hardware update wizard and then at the end it says that the hardware wasnt installed because it couldnt find the right software. I've re-installed realtek software but i cant get my sound back. I have an Acer Aspire One D260-A netbook so i cant even put in a hardware disk to get my sound back. Im also using Windows XP. So please can anybody help? And if anyone knows a step-by-step way on how to do so then i would be forever grateful. thank you.
Im having this same problem. when i try to install the driver setup i downloaded from the acer site though it repeatedly tells me to uninstall the old driver and reboot. Then after i do that i see an installing new hardware configuration running and it repeats. its frustrating and i cant get my sound to work.
