I've tried a few forums to get the sound working, and I'm about to give up.

Trying a manual load via add hardware - removes the error in the device manager, but the speaker icon in the toolbar still displayed the no device message... with only one caveat, gave blue screen of death everytime rebooted, had to safe boot and unistall the sound device or disable.

After searching for "best driver" and selecting the realtek driver, as the copying window is doing the file-transfer animation, I get the blue screen

Many, many maual loads have been tried, sound worked prior to running a registry cleaner (dont remember which, I deleted that damn thing).
