Re-installing AV Rack

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.general (More info?)

Several days ago I did a stupid thing and deleted something called an AV Rack
from my desktop. Since that time I have had no sound on my PC,cannot listen
to radio etc.
Is someone able to advise me how to rectify this situation please ?

It would be appreciated if any advice is given in fairly straightforward
terms as I am not that computer-literate ( as will be deduced from my actions
in deleting this AV Rack !)

The operating system on my PC is XP Home and I have all the disks that came
with it...if these are needed.

Hope I have done this correctly as it is the first time I have used this
Forum.

Cheers and thanks.

    I'm not sure why deleting an icon would cause this problem. The AV Rack
    is a little program that was installed along with your sound card
    drivers. If I misunderstood your post and you didn't just delete a
    shortcut on the desktop but rather used Add/Remove Programs to
    uninstall it, just reinstall your sound card drivers.

    Hi Malke......yes,I'm sure that I uninstalled the whole thing.
    I have two disks that could fit the bill so far as reinstallation is
    concerned: one is titled simply "Drivers and utilities.....version 29.0" no
    other text on the disk at all.
    The other disk is part of Gigabyte's P4 Titan pack and is titled
    "Motherboard utilities CD"...it mentions under a heading called Drivers
    thatthere is "Audio".

    Could you advise me which one is likely to be the one to reinstall ?
    Cheers.

    Is it still in your recycle bin? If so, restore it.

    Use the disk that contains your sound drivers, or go to your sound
    devices web site and download more up-to-date drivers from them.

    The AV Rack is the audio program that came with your
    motherboard, and it is required to operate the onboard
    sound. Use the Gigabyte CD and reinstall the Audio.
