i know it's very stupid, but i have accidentally deleted/removed from control panel the audio hardware on a lap top, and now there's no sound at all. Iam wondering if i can re-download it or do i have to purchase a new one..? &Hopefully that won't cost any $$, because it was actually my dad's laptop that i ruined i don't want to make him spend more money, he's probably gonging to "kill" me!!!!!!!!
