Sorry if I am missing something obvious and thanks again so much for your help.
Hey Sean,

Sorry for the late reply. I believe you have to go into your BIOS and make sure the Azalia Audio Chip is enabled. Once it has been enabled reinstall the drivers and restart the computer. Let us know the outcome.

Hi Jack,

No problem about the response time - I am just so grateful for your time and effort in helping me. Thankfully you have successfully solved my issue. In the BIOS the section for auto detecting sound was disabled (I still couldn't see the chip in there!), anyway I enabled that -I have no idea how or why it was disabled, it was the only thing not enabled. This immediately installed the drivers on start up again and sound was available!!

Thanks again so much for your help, it really is most appreciated.
