IBM T42 with no sound card

\015 Purchased a refurbished 15" IBM T42 1.7GB online. Finally realized there were no system sounds. The hardware profile shows a sound card driver but no sound card. Is this device supposed to have a sound card?\015

Answers :

It should be part of the mainboard rather than a separate card. Try uninstalling the drivers, then reboot and see if it detects new hardware.
