apparently, i dont have a sound card, the audio comes integrated... but i did try to install sigmatel and it didnt work. im not sure what i have to do next.... maybe i should just reformat the whole thing again
when i try to set up the new driver, after it's installation, i'm told that there are no components.
by the way i'm shocked as to how many people have a problem with the sound/audio with this dimension.

thanks - there are no sound entries with a yellow "!" in the device manager.
the msg reads:- devise object not present, restart your computer and try to install again.
I think the soundcard has disapeared - don't ask me how or even why
I am soooooooooooooooooooooo angry - i can't wait to call them tomorrow and give them a proper ear bashing.
the p.c. is not even a month old yet.
thanks for your reply - let me know if there are any updates/news.
