Audio driver gone and won't reinstall

Hello, i recently got the fbi moneypak ransomware virus and after i did scans and got rid of it, my audio stopped working and the driver was messed up. So i uninstalled the broken driver which was SoundMax Intergrated Digital Audio and try to install a driver from dell's website, but it won't install or tells me i'm missing a ADI codec. I'm running on a Dell Optiplex 280.

  1. check out this, I found it on the US Dell Support site looking at the drivers page for your Optiplex

    http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/04/DriverDetails/Product/optiplex-gx280?driverId=VDY44&osCode=ww1&fileId=2731108842

    apparently this is tool that looks for broken drivers and tries to repair them, hope it works for you.

    also try redownloading the audio driver here

    Ran the tool and it complete, did a restart. Tried to reinstall the audio driver, it installed then restarted. Then got a error saying no ADI codec driver is installed.

    Not sure what to do about that one.
