Hard Drive restored, but sound card isn't talking

After 3 years my Evesham Voyager laptop's hard drive finally gave out, so I purchased a new one which was installed by the repair company (it was a Chinese repair company as I live in Chengdu). They managed to extract all the information from the broken hard drive and put it on to the new one, which is now working sort of well. However, the problem is that there is no sound. The laptop seems to use a generic audio driver (Realtek ac97), but every time I try to reinstall this driver it does not configure, and a 'code 10' error is flashed up. Does anyone have any ideas about where I should go from here? Many thanks,
Tom

You should uninstall your old driver before installing the new one.
