Dell Inspiron 1150 Sound Card

\015 I have a problem with my Inspiron 1150. Just a couple of weeks ago the sound all of sudden stopped working. I have tried to reinstall the SigmaTel driver but it won't let me. An error message comes up while trying to install it and it says, "Installing SigmaTel C-Major Audio" and then it says, "Device object not present, restart the system and run setup again." I don't know what to do about this seeing as the computer doesn't recognize the sound card all of a sudden. I ran dxdiag and it says No Sound Card Found. Can someone please help me?\015

If it is, right click an select "Uninstall" Then reboot. Windows should detect it, and reinstall it. If that fails, go to Start>Add/Remove Programs and uninstall any Sigma Software.
