No Sound


I recently had my computer fixed and they had to reload all my systems. Now I have no sound. I went through the sound troubleshooter and I think the reason is because my Sound Driver (VAI Technologies VinylAC97CodecComboDriverWDM)is not "digitally signed" for MS Windows XP. How do I get sound back?

It is ok if a driver is not "digitally signed", but you need to find the drivers that are made for your sound card If you have the company name and model, go to their website and search for the drivers by the soundcard model name/number Once you download the driver and install it if the driver is not "digitally signed" it will ask you if you still would like to continue and install, click yes and reboot your computer and your soundcard should be up and running.
