Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad R40 Notebook ?

Sound card no longer functions?

\015 I seem to have the necessary drivers on my computer, but when I try to\015\012open sound programs I am informed that there is no hardware installed. \015\012When I look in System Information / Components / Sound Device, there is\015\012simply nothing there.\015\012It used to work just fine. I recently went out of town for a spell,\015\012packed up my thinkpad into its protective case, returned and found it\015\012untouched, but suddenly the sound card is no longer recognized. I even\015\012tried reformatting the whole machine with no luck. What can I do? Why\015\012would it simply stop working like that?\015
