    Alright, so,

    Yesterday, there was a power outage,
    and while ke dbeing at school,
    I didn't know until I came home that this happened:

    My main computer's internet had developed a glitch thanks to the outage, and it wouldn't allow my dad to get onto any webstie.

    So, what he did was delete the internet, and get a new one.

    (Mind you the internet he lost an got where both IE).

    Sadly, when I went on Youtube,
    there was no sound.
    I tried two other videos.
    No sound.

    I checked the control panel, it said there was "No sound device" in "Sounds and Audio Devices".

    Apperantly, from my dad's research,
    The driver controlling sound dropped.

    Is there any way I can put sound back on my computer?

    Check the BIOS.
    It might have just disabled the audio device.

    If not, find the name of your sound card and download the driver off the manufacturer website. Also, he didn't delete "the internet." If he did, it would be all over the news.

    And, if all else, fails... go to Microsoft's update site and select to install the optional hardware updates (these hardware updates on the site are usually device drivers).

    If the manufacturer driver doesn't work, Microsoft's generic crappy driver definitely won't work. It's another problem entirely if the man. driver doesn't fix it.

      If you have the original documentation that came with your computer, the name should be buried somewhere in it. Otherwise, Google the model and make of your computer and see what comes up. You'll probably find the specs somewhere.

        If the user cannot find the name of the card or cannot find their driver disc, it's fine (the Microsoft one is the EXACT SAME if it's a device that's been out for over a year - and I have used this for retrieving my drivers before).

        And if the Microsoft driver/manufacturer driver doesn't work, your motherboard may be nearly done, as this happened to me in January with a 6 year old motherboard (it wouldn't take it's own drivers anymore, let alone the drivers for anything else).
